Shiny legs or just white paint? The internet is divided

COLUMBUS (WCMH)— This optical illusion has the internet going crazy.

A picture of these legs has gone viral on Twitter after people struggled to figure out whether they had streaks of paint on them or if they were covered in oil.


The photo was first posted on Instagram by Hunter Culverhouse. It then quickly went viral, with many comparing it to the great dress debate of 2015.

Culverhouse later told Insider the optical illusion wasn’t planned.

“[I] had some white paint left on my brush and put random lines on my legs, turned out to be a completely confusing picture for everyone on the Internet,” Culverhouse told Insider. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
