The Internet never ceases to amaze me. If you've been on social media at all in the last 24 hours, you've seen the llama drama and the drama about the dress. Posted to Tumblr, nobody can agree on what color this dress is: blue and black or white and gold? Here's the post from Tumblr:
guys please help me - is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking out
So I just looked at this like, it’s blue and black obviously and all my friends were like no it’s blue and gold. Now I’m super confused, what is eyesight?
I see it as white and gold. My friend right here sees it as blue and black. I CANT HANDLE THIS
if that’s not gold my entire life has been a lie
I am seeing Blue and Black, how are people seeing it different? Is there some sort of mind sorcery happening here?!
i just saw it as gold and white which was weird bc earlier it was blue and black so i thought maybe ye were [messing] with me but i went to reblog and now its blue and black again?!1?
I AM GOING TO CRY
My class just had a debate over this. Half sees black and blue, the other half sees gold and white. Someone please explain this…
SPREAD THIS UNTIL IT REACHES NASA WE MUST FIND ANSWERS
WHAT IS THIS WITCH CRAFT
I see black and blue [...] how is anyone seeing white
What do you think? Look at it once. Then look at it again. Answer carefully. Most everyone who has seen this meme has formed a pretty strong opinion about it.
What do you think? Black and blue or white and gold? Did it change colors for you? Let me know what you think by answering this quick poll.
The simple question has turned the Internet upside down with celebrities chiming in, and reviewers taking to Amazon to review the dress. After much debate, it appears the dress is black and blue and the photo was subject to bad lighting. See the Vine below of the photo in Photoshop.
On top of that, Buzzfeed managed to track down someone who had seen the dress in person. She has confirmed that it is blue and black. But not everyone believes it. See some of the hilarious celebrity tweets below:
I don't understand this odd dress debate and I feel like it's a trick somehow. I'm confused and scared. PS it's OBVIOUSLY BLUE AND BLACK
