Couple's Selfie Taking The Internet By Storm - Among Many Others Capturing Attention

Twitter user Andy Fuentes has taken the internet by a storm after he posted a picture of a young man posing with his girlfriend. The selfie, while initially appearing to be normal, left internet users terrified after they noticed that the girl in the photo looks like she has two faces, with one face looking towards the camera, and the other being reflected back in the mirror directly behind her.

Twitter users were horrified after Twitter user ‘WorldStarLaugh’ pointed out that the girl in a selfie appeared to have two faces, one facing the camera, and the other reflected in the mirror behind her. After commenting “So we just gonna ignore the fact that her reflection is smiling back at them?”, the photo led to many people posting GIFs showing dogs and cats freaking out as well as popular memes of priests wielding crosses. Some users even commented on the photo, with one user instantly replying “delete this,” and another replying with a meme that stated, “I don’t play with demons.”

Thankfully, one viewer of the photo was able to unearth a logical clue that could explain the unsettling image. After viewing the caption of the photo, “I love my girlfriend even if she’s a Gemini”, Twitter user ‘Steeezepizza’ cleverly noted that the photo is a play on the zodiac symbol of Gemini, that is represented by twins, stating “lol, the joke is that Geminis have ‘two faces’/personalities, they are the twin sign. This is a doctored photo playing off that.” The Gemini zodiac sign carries a symbol of twins that is often accompanied with a stereotype that individuals born under the star sign have split personalities or are ‘two faced’ which has been used by many to explain the creepy selfie.

This image is not the first of its kind to go viral, with another photo of a couple showed a similar face staring back at the viewer in a reflection of a window. The woman in the photo, who was wearing a headscarf, was seen standing next to her boyfriend with a face staring back at the camera in the reflection of a window behind her. Multiple internet users claimed the photo was intentionally manipulated, while some people thought it may be the pattern of her headscarf casting an eerily human-like reflection.

These photos have been followed by another viral selfie post, made by Californian, Ms. Madeline Ochoa. When Ms. Ochoa decided to post a mirror selfie on her Twitter account, she never anticipated that the photo would be shared thousands of times.

The photo appears to be relatively normal, with Ms. Ochoa sporting a brown colored beanie, jeans and a grey top. However, when Twitter users clicked on the photo, Ms. Ochoa’s t-shirt appeared to change color, creating an optical illusion. Furthermore, when internet users zoomed in and out of the photo, the t-shirt appeared to change patterns, causing the photo to receive around 58.8 thousand likes.

Ms. Ochoa mentioned to BuzzFeed that the photo has prevented her using Twitter because the app continually freezes from the influx of retweets and likes.
