Dancing in the Moonlight

If you haven't seen this before it is truly extraordinary.

No, it's not a video of the annoying hit by Front-Loader which dominated the charts for 23 months last Century. And it's not the view through Dave's Astrological Telescope when it is accidentally trained on heavenly bodies.


Just look at the lady dancing for long enough and she will suddenly switch direction from clockwise to anti-clockwise. It's something to do with the absence of complete visual clues and the difference between left and right hemispheres of the brain. You may have to try a few times but you will be completely amazed when the switch occurs.

That image pops up every time I click on a Spanish newspaper. Works every time.

Dave said...

Could she put some clothes on, please?

Jon Storey said...

Nope. I had gazed at it till I was going dizzy but she still turned the same way. My brain must need a re-wire!

I did notice that she had a fine figure though.....

Rog said...

Rosie: Is that "El Usion"?

Dave: I'll send her down to Primark.

Jon: Try again later. It took me a few tries to see it.

Christopher said...

If you accompany her physically (e.g. Wii, wide screen, HD, full moon) you soon discover the secret, so Dave tells me.

Annie said...

Me neither, Jon. I can't believe anybody could see her going the other way. And why is she so, um, perky?

Vicus Scurra said...

I was not amazed. Because you told me it would happen.

Rog said...

Christopher: In France you could use the famous outdoor wii.

Annie: So you got there 3 years ago! I didn't see it at first but sometimes if you look away and look back she changes. Three years should be long enough!

Vicus: Yer right!

Jon Storey said...

Still no! My cousin is a psychiatrist and a friend in a leading neurosurgeon, I will go and have treatment....

Rog said...

Jon: Try it in 3 years time!

Christopher said...

Perky? Pinky and perky, that would be? - tho' it's not easy to tell by moonlight.

Mr VeryVeryBored said...

I think I might know her.

Richard said...

I was losing interest after a while but it does indeed happen - albeit for apparently only half a turn - if, after a couple of minutes, you read your last paragraph while keeping half a mind on the figure. It is the kind of figure I could easily keep half a mind on.

Sarah said...

Boys boys.

It's something to do with being creative or not...which way she turns i mean.

Tim Footman said...

Was it not Lupe Velez who could rotate her bosoms in opposite directions?

And am I the only one who started to feel a bit sick after watching the shadowy lady for 30 seconds?

Rog said...

Christopher: Indeed. Where are they now?

Mr VVB: Not in Eastbourne you don't.

Richard: Hurrah! It's a bit like those infuriating 3D posters which seem to have disappeared.

Sarah: A lot of creative people swing both ways.

Tim: She never mentioned it to me. I'm sorry about the nausea though...

Jon Storey said...

Three years later. Still looking!

Given up with the turning thing, but she is a fine lass!
