A Stranger Things-inspired optical illusion was recently shared on Instagram by artist Rishi Kaneria. Someone created a portrait that can only be seen with closed eyes! “Can you identify it?” Rishi asked in the caption of the video he shared. An optical illusion of one of the artist’s favourite TV show characters is created in the video.

On August 26, he uploaded this illusion to Instagram, and since then, it has had over 66,800 views, almost 4,000 likes, and a number of comments. One person said, “I tried it for eleven seconds and blood started gushing out of my nose.” Another remarked, “Yesss, that worked.” As usual, the music entered just as the image started to come into focus. A fourth said, “Love your videos!”

Yes, congratulate yourself, but only if you can name the Stranger Things character from the Netflix series. Others see Millie Bobby Brown’s Eleven from the television series Stranger Things on the multi-coloured negative.
