A photograph of a couple embracing on a beach has left people scratching their heads, staring vacantly into the distance and yelling "WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!"

The image, uploaded to photo-sharing site Imgur earlier this week, comes with the caption "this hurts my brain".

At first it looks as though the man is being lifted up, but then if you take a look at his shorts...

The white shorts, and the blue shorts... but.. what?! How?

To reiterate:

What the hell is going on?!

The comments on the article have been just as perplexed as us:

I don't like this... it's messing with me too much.

Could it be the new dress?

Are those shorts black and blue or white and gold?

Another person noted:


But slowly, people started to cotton on:

Once you see it, it makes sense.

Until one fun sponge came along and pointed out the obvious:

His shorts are two colours. White in the middle, black on the outside. I'm fun at parties, please invite me.

We're still not sure, though...
