This will freak you out! These faces have not been altered in any way. It won second place in the Best Illusion of the Year Contest, 2012! It’s a new scientific finding called the “Flashed Face Distortion Effect”. You can read more about it here and here Tangen, JM, Murphy, S., & Thompson, MB (in press). Flashed face distortion effect: Grotesque faces from relative spaces. Perception advance online publication, doi:10.1068/p6968. Thanks to for the faces.

TheMurderCircus says:

These faces remind me of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. lol.

TheCrackerBrony says:

i didn’t get it at first, but then i noticed they started to look like fcking mutants or some shit

LucasCamargosRamos says:

Why did I expect a scream at the end?

zippL0ck says:

lots are ugly but thats not the point , the point is when you look at the cross the faces mix together & make really distorted freaky faces , granted some look pretty freaky to start with but not as freaky as when you look at the cross .
its like your mind has just enough time to see one feature from each picture when you aren’t fully looking at it & its changing quickly , which sort of creats freaky police style photo fits

amyzinpa says:

I don’t get it. I saw a bunch of cyclopses

I searched “ugly” on youtube and found a hotty, than I searched beautiful and found One Direction…

W͟E͟N͟ D͟O͟R͟ says:

Try harder, soldier! We believe in you!

Yxsunny19 says:

No! If you looked only at one face (not at the cross) you notice some are ugly so this is’nt an illusion!

Nenaptio says:

Cyclops, people with no eyes, oh god…

mstarburst says:

Are these real women or computerized? Afew look like men nd others have exaggerated features, even when not looking at the cross? I hant ever seen an ugly woman before this vid!!

XxwagnerxX says:

When I look at just one face at a time: well they are a bit creepy on their own.
When I look at the middle: holy **** what the heck am I seeing

ManvsMachine7 says:

hahaha, i thought the same thing

imakepoopoo says:

i saw a cyclops too o.O

faith112102 says:

OHHHHHHH pulez!! I looked away and it was still changing!!!

darkwinter201 says:

I thought it was gonna scream at the end.

nenalopez97 says:

fuckn awesome!

Solei751 says:

Ugh, i could have sworn i just something demonic, complete with horns, greyish skin color and vertical pupils.

Creepy indeed! o.O

hernan4429 says:

Dude that was one of the creepiest things i’ve seen in my entire life…

LuxiusDK says:

This has NOTHING to do with the cross-hair. Try looking directly at one of the changing faces, and you’ll see the same “deformity”. This is due to the different faces not being symmetrically “compatible”, and your brain cannot distinguish one picture from the other (well, it can, but you’ll mix up the faces). What a stupid video, trying to put focus on the cross-hair, not the fact that the faces change quickly.
Don’t give in to propaganda!

MsJessicaKayyy says:

the fuck

Martinadel1 says:

some of them looks like characters from Skyrim and LOTR

pinkalicious9499 says:

chazden says:

ofekishay says:
