There is a dress that might be black and blue or white and gold.
It started on this Tumblr page here, where a user posted this dress with the caption, “guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f**k out.”
Here’s the dress.
And people on Twitter are completely freaking out whether this dress is blue and black or white and gold. (Note: some of the embedded tweets contain NSFW language.)
folks i do colours for a living and that dress is blue and black. the yellowish lighting is making the black part look sorta gold.

Is the dress prettier when you see it as white and gold? I don’t understand what’s happening

And of course, Denny’s.
*stops furiously scribbling amidst dozens of coffee cups*there is no dress. it is not the dress that changes colours, it is only yourself.

Naturally, the debate surrounding the dress includes the Illuminati.
And the llamas that were loose in Arizona earlier today.
I wish I had the skillz to photoshop that dress onto a llama.

And amid all this, there might be an explanation here.
