“It’s been said that just under one percent of people can also see an angry face.”

He gives viewers a few seconds to try to spot the angry man and invites people to comment “Step 1” in the comments if they can see it.

For those having trouble finding the angry face, it’s recommended to cover part of the image with your finger – on the nose, just below one of the eyes – to get a better look at it.

He says, “If you can’t see the angry face, put a finger right there on the screen — hold it for a second.”

Viewers who were able to spot the angry man with the tip were asked to post “Step 2” in the comments to confirm they found him.

But even with the simple trick, many people were still unable to spot second sight.

Mr Jackson adds: “Just give yourself another five seconds and if you still can’t see that face please post ‘what an angry face’ in the comments.”

Several frustrated viewers replied in the comments that they were having trouble seeing the secondary image.

One user wrote, “I can’t see the angry face at all.”

Another said: “What angry face? And I usually get that.”

“Nope. I still can’t see it,” added a third.

Other viewers were quick to offer advice and share hacks on how to spot the angry face in the comments.

One user advised, “If you’re having trouble, think of the ear as an eye.”

“The bare part of the cheek is a new nose. Right eye is ear. The left part of the new face is in shadow,” said another.

A third wrote: “Cover from the top of his head to the right side of his face.

Another illusion that stuns people is a video shared by TikTok by user @seaondoesmagic which claims to make viewers colorblind after staring at an image in a 50-second test.

Viewers are asked to stare at four different colored squares which are blue, green, red and yellow.

After focusing on the center of the image, the user says the squares change color less than a minute later, making the viewer feel like they’ve gone color blind.

In the clip, the user known as Seany says, “I’m going to make you colorblind and if you don’t believe me then give it a try.

“The screen should show a square image with four different colors.

“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.

“You should be feeling color blind by now.”
