If you stepped away from the internet yesterday, you might have missed our collective species being fixated on two seemingly random topics: llamas and the color of a certain dress.
First uploaded to Tumblr 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 **** out," the image soon exploded onto the wider web with people quickly lining up behind one of two dress color combination factions: #blackandblue and #whiteandgold. In typical internet fashion, lots of indignant shouting and rage quitting followed.
Luckily, we have the cool heads over at ASAPScience to reveal the actual color of the dress and calmly explain why the lighting in the photo is playing tricks with all our brains.
Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP…
What colors do you see? Science be damned, I'll forever be team #whiteandgold.
