From left to right, the colors are blue, green, red, and yellow.

“I want you to stare straight into the center of this picture and not take your eyes off it – try not to blink.

“What’s going to happen is you keep staring at the center, keep focusing and focusing on that image, and then in a few seconds the colors will change. And then slowly the colors turn to black and white.”

The video creator then counts down from three and clicks their numbers, and the image on the screen changes color.

He adds: “Now it should look like a really weird color and slowly fade to black and white.
