Broken Window Optical Illusion

Quote
Eventhough this window shop appears to be broken, itís just another creative advertising done by apple. It sure does itís purpose, and that is to drive peopleís attention. I wouldíve never guessed itís just a sticker across the whole window. Brilliant! Jump inside this article for more pictures from different corners, and at the end, you will see the central one, that shows you what this commercial is for.

I don't get it. He's just standing next to a stain on the ground.

Yep. Maybe hold the picture away from you to blur the illusion a little?

I get what the image is suppose to do, but there really isn't any separation for me. All I see are his feet on concrete.

That happens with illusions sometimes. Ya know those kind that have two different images. Once you see the one, the other is hard to see, despite imagining what your seeing.

 I get what is happening to what your seeing.

I honestly have no idea where to put this.

It's a fake documentary with absolutely amazing CGI effects. Check it out. It's got some pretty crazy stuff.

This hilarious fake documentary has a scientist talking about how insane roller coasters can increase IQ.  The special effects in this one serve up the funny.  I think these rides are something very few people would actually ride, but would love to watch others doing so:

I'd be okay with this going in the Theme Park thread, even if it is a fake doc. Your call.

Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtVEj86Vmzo

Yes, this technically should be in the Now Playing Thread, but since this is Ricky Jay, it's only fitting that it would be here. Sue me. Speaking of Ricky, a long time ago, I discovered him first as an actor that "dabbled" in magic. It didn't take long before I realized that it was the other way around. I'm looking forward to this one for sure.

That should be interesting.

I think we are going to the theater to check out Now You See Me...
I like certain kinds of magic...
