  1. This is an example of counter-revolutionary propaganda, typical of the degenerate ruling classes.

    it is a cool effect the thatcher effect but it was far more startling on QI

  3. Stevie says:

    I’ve seen this done with a still image and it’s incredible how it works. I think I prefer the video version though.

  4. Alma says:

    That’s very weird.

  5. Bert says:

    Thanks for letting us know.

    Noses never seem to be flipped in these illusions, so I tried, an upside down conk is too insignificant to add to the effect, but it does seem a bit nose-ist not to include them.

      I think because most people focus on the nose (at least in the westernised world) when looking at faces. That means you can mess with the other parts – eyes, mouth, ears, and it has less effect than messing with the nose.

      Most experiments of this type bear out this conclusion.

    • Lazy T says:

      So it would be too significant and give away the illusion?
      I must be odd cos’ I look at people’s teeth and eyes, I barely notice their noses.

    • Paul says:

      Noses are far to easy to orientate as to whether they are up or down. Whereas eyes and mouths can be flipped with less noticable effects. Not many people have nostrils in the eyebrows. Not unless you live in Norfolk.

    For a completely different experience, flip your screen over and watch it like that. It’s hard to believe it’s the same video.

    I could tell there was something wrong with the eyes but couldn’t say what.
