A new version of ‘The Dress’ is tearing the internet apart
BLOODY hell, internet. Stop trying to tear us all apart.
One year on from The Dress debate (otherwise known as the most scandalous and dividing controversy of our time), a similar post is setting Tumblr alight.
Behold… The Jacket.
Tumblr user poppunkblogger uploaded the image with the caption, “I hate to make a new blue/black white/gold dress meme but my friend has this jacket and she says it’s white and blue but i see black and brown pls tell me what you see”.
Social media is divided, with many people seeing blue and white, others seeing black and brown, and a few even finding it to look green and gold.
Some people are also saying the colour changes depending on what device you’re viewing it on.
You’ll undoubtedly remember The Dress that sparked enormous debate last year. The internet was in a fierce battle over whether it was blue and black or white and gold.
Scientists explained this phenomenon, saying that our perception of colour depends on our ability to analyse the amount of ambient light in the visual. When this light is missing, we have to draw our own conclusions, and can thus perceive the colour in different ways.
But damn it, internet. Enough is enough. We’re pretty sure The Dress alone caused millions of violent arguments, gruesome homicides and messy divorces around the world. We don’t need this sh*t again.
Let us all join hands, burn The Jacket, and stand around it singing Kum Ba Yah. Case closed.
