The dog’s tail appeared at first glance to be the back of a person’s head.

‘I had to stare at it before I could see it,’ another person agreed.
Someone else said: ‘I almost gave up.’
Hundreds of people realised their initial take on the image was off after analysing the photo.

‘Took me a while to figure this one out,’ one person commented.
One user, who spotted the pooch immediately, wrote: ‘Why can’t I see the man? I only see the dog.’
Others thought it was clear, with one person writing: ‘I’m curious as to how the people who saw a man running were able to explain away the fact that running man has a giant dogs head coming out of them.’
Hundreds of viewers realised their initial take on the image was off after analysing the photo and shared their response in the comments
‘This is ridiculous, all most people can see is a dog,’ another person agreed.
‘The only way this is a man is if he has weird poodle hair or hat and is wearing a dog jumpsuit with weird paws attached and a dog face image on his back.
‘So no, it’s not an optical illusion unless you’re on drugs.’
One person was left unconvinced by the image and insisted it was, in fact, a man.
They said: ‘It’s a guy in a sick jacket and hat running into the woods. I can tell by the gait that it’s a person.’
