A government-issued social distancing graphic is turning heads — and not because of its message.
Eagle-eyed commenters noticed something off about the photo immediately — a phantom hand in a black sleeve.
“Is this shapeshifter dog doing growing a human arm?” another said.
Other commenters suggested that the arm belongs to the woman on the left, but the angle and shadow make it look much longer than it actually is.
“They each have one hand on the bowl, the mystery arm is the left hand of the woman in the beige top, you can see the edge of her beige sleeve in the shadow if you zoom in,” a different user explained.
Whether it’s a Photoshop fail or an optical illusion, it certainly kept social media users inside and entertained for a moment.
“Hundreds of Britons stayed home figuring out whose arm was whose. Good strategy,” one user wrote.
