Wedding Dress Photo Captures Bizarre Reflection That Freaks Out Social Media Users

Writer and comedian Tessa Coates was trying on a wedding dress when she seemed to have dropped into an episode of Black Mirror, a Netflix series that is a contemporary reworking of The Twilight Zone. Tessa took to Instagram to share a photo of herself standing in front of two mirrors while trying on a wedding dress. Take a look at the photo below. If you can’t see the problem, keep looking — you won’t be able to unsee it. The “glitch in the Matrix” nearly made the bride-to-be sick to her stomach. If you still haven’t figured it out, look closely. In the image, Tessa’s hands are snapped in three different positions between two mirrors and where she actually stands. Many social media users were perplexed by what was happening in the photo, with several torn between congratulating Tessa on her engagement and telling her to run. Tessa checked to see whether it was a live photo or a burst, but neither seemed to be the case. Tessa’s sister even had some of her tech co-workers take a look, but they were all just as perplexed as everyone else. Out of options, Tessa went to her local Apple Store to see if someone there could help her figure out what had happened. Finally, an employee named Roger admitted that he’d never seen a case this bad, but it does happen. He explained that phones are computers not cameras, and so even without the live photo setting turned on it does take a burst of images from left to right. Roger further explained that at the exact moment the camera went behind her back, Tessa must have raised her hands and so it made a completely different set of images on the other side. It’s likely that AI stitched those two photos together. Tessa ended her explanation to her social media followers by saying that Apple employee Roger admitted the end result was a “one in a million chance.”
