VIDEO. This optical illusion with a swing will liven up your Christmas meal

A person is filmed from a distance swinging. But in what direction is she seated: facing the camera or back to the camera? (Response at the end of this article.)

Are you still looking for a hot topic of debate for your Christmas Eve? An American internet user has uploaded the nugget you need. On a video published Sunday, December 22, a person is filmed, from a distance, swinging in a snowy playground. But in what direction is she seated: facing the camera or back to the camera?

On social networks, the battle is fierce. Each camp tries to convince the other, animations or photos in support. Here's to the back-to-camera proponents …

And here are for those who assure that the person is installed in front of the camera and back to the background building. They rely in particular on the fact that at the climax of their ascent, the person passes behind the horizontal bar at the top of the swing. Likewise, it passes behind the vertical posts which maintain the structure.

The American BuzzFeed site (in English) launched a survey among its internet users, who were very divided on the question: Tuesday, at 6 p.m., 30,600 estimated that the person was facing the camera and 28,800 swore the opposite.

To find out the end of the story, BuzzFeed interviewed the author of the video, Eric Tupper, on Sunday. He says he filmed the scene last February, in Alaska (United States). “We were in a house and we noticed this person swinging. We went on the terrace and we realized that some saw it facing us, others from the back. So I took some videos to prove which way it swayed. I published it on TikTok two days ago and it all started from there. “

If BuzzFeed does not give the verdict, the answer is ultimately found in an old message posted by Eric Tupper on Twitter. The author of the images had already published the video in February and had put an end to the mystery in a reply to another internet user: “We drove to school, he was in front of us.”
