Twitter users are scratching their heads over a familiar 80s pattern as they just can't work out where it's originally from.
Some suggested - while others disproved - the pattern came from Saved By The Bell or the opening credits of Rugrats, while others believed it was from a NOW music album.
The pattern in question features a turquoise background with a colourful purple, pink and yellow geometric design, and there's no denying it feels super familiar.
In a tweet shared on Friday, which read: "I'm sure twitter can help. A friend is trying to identify this artwork, from a 1980s album cover he thinks. Any suggestions?" one user shared a picture of the pattern, prompting scores of people to come forward with their own attempts to place it - and plenty were getting quite worked up about it.
"I've watched entire episodes of Supermarket Sweep, Strike It Lucky, Art Attack, Sweet Valley High and many, many more trying to find where this is from," replied one, before adding: "Thoughts and prayers with anyone who is also going through this tonight x we will get through this together."
"Is it from the opening credits of Rugrats cartoon?" asked a second.
A third quipped: "I have used up 30% of my phone battery googling everything. Need. To. Know."
"Was it a NOW album?? I think it looks like the inside of a double compilation album that, I am not joking, I have a at home. It was a Now album or similar from late 80s [sic]," questioned a fourth.
Some users came forward claiming that the pattern had been discovered on a skateboard - although some were unconvinced this was the original origin.
Others have suggested the design was in the style of another made famous by The Memphis Group, created by Italian designer and architect Ettore Sottsass.
In the 1980s era, the pattern was used on clothing, duvet and stationery, which could explain why so many feel it's familiar.
We'll still be wasting the rest of the day trying to work out where this pattern is from though... any suggestions?
