See this crazy viral optical illusion that everyone's talking about

The Internet is going nuts over this new photo. But this is no blue or white dress, and it's no Photoshop job either. This is an old-fashioned optical illusion caught on camera, much like the cat on the stairs. It's all thanks to perspective.

It will look really weird when you first see it, but it's so cool.

The photo was taken and posted to reddit by a user known as Zibin:

What do you think? Does that look like an M.C. Escher drawing to you? How does the crane have room for the construction workers? Is that orange cone floating over that worker's head?

Everything is perfectly normal in this photo, I promise. It's all just an optical illusion. Some other Redditors posted explanations, such as the angle of the crane. What you can't see is that the crane has lifted the men at such an angle. And the other worker? He's just in the right place at the right time.

Here's a drawing of the crane explanation posted by Redditor MrDLTE3:
