Flashed Face Distortion Effect – In Comparison, Shrek is Pretty

I am regularly fascinated by optical illusions and this one, referred to as “Flashed Face Distortion Effect” is particularly terrible and interesting as the same time. I could try explain it but you are better off experiencing it first had, so see the video below shared by MATTHEW B. THOMPSON which recently took second place for “Best Illusion of the Year” 2012.
