If you’re in the mood to trick your brain, we’ve got just the thing for you.

Akiyoshi Kitaoka is a psychology professor at Ritsumeikan University in Japan. One look at his Twitter, and it’s pretty obvious he has an affinity for making and sharing optical illusions.

One illusion in particular involving a picture of strawberries has recently become a viral sensation, and we are berry confused by it.

How exactly are these strawberries an optical illusion? No red pixels are in this photo.
