What do you see? Just a wall of bricks, right?

Wrong.

When Facebook user Arron Bevin from Manchester, in the UK, posted the photo on May 17, the internet freaked out.

So far it has been shared 50,563 times, and attracted 64,000 comments.

It’s driving people mad.

Some people see it right away. Others won’t see it until it’s pointed out to them.
