Its the meme that refuses to die. That dress yes, that one is back, but it appears to have been reincarnated into flip-flop form.
For the record, this writer insures the footwear as being adorned with a blue and gold concoction. They dont look blue and black, or white and gold, to yours truly.
Sure, you can use Photoshop to ascertain the exact pigment of coloring and settle the debate once and for all( again ), but that would ruin the chance to see your coworkers and friends wail and point at each other anew.
The fact that this optical illusionstill persists in its popularity is reasonably astounding. It doesnt help that it maintains get reported on, and the irony isnt lost on us at IFLScience. Still, peak dress doesnt appear to have happened yet in fact, it looks like were far from it.
So it seems that, for now, civilizations will rise and fall, but this meme and all the rage and bemusement it produces will live on. Beyond climate change, beyond apocalyptic volcanic supereruptions, beyond alien intrusions, this treacherous coloring dichotomy will endure.
This meme will likely stand alongside cat videos as one of the enduring creations of our species. Make of that what you will.
To be fair, we have always opted another optical illusion meme. Namely, can you tell the difference between these pastries and various dog breeds?
