Mindblowing Optical Illusion
At first glance, the silhouette is spinning clockwise. but you can reverse the spinning.
I honestly thought this was a hoax of some kind and I was being made a fool by staring at this thing trying to make it change direction, and then sure enough, I did it.
Here's what worked for me: Look at the shadow. Notice the shadow of the spinning foot. Try to tell yourself that you are looking at the shadow going the other direction. Once you've convinced yourself of that, look back up (if it helps, cover the girl and only look at the shadow until you can get it to change direction).
