The internet has been sent into a spin by ANOTHER viral dress – though this time it’s nothing to do with the colour.
Writer and comedian Tessa Coates had been trying on wedding dresses when a strange ‘glitch in the matrix’ occurred.
She’d been trying out options at a wedding dress shop by herself, and one of the employees took some photos of her so she could see the garment from all angles.
When she went to look at the snaps, however, she noticed a truly baffling detail in one of the images, saying she ‘almost vomited on the street’ when she saw it.
Posting the picture on her Instagram Stories, she said: “Hello. Okay I’m going to show you a real ‘Glitch in the Matrix’ photo. Be prepared.
“Yesterday I went to a wedding dress shop, on my own, and the lady took some photos. This is one of them.
“I swear on my life, totally real, not photoshopped. Not a joke. I saw it and almost vomited on the street.”
The reaction was so big that she ended up popping it on her grid as well.
“I went wedding dress shopping and the fabric of reality crumbled,” Tessa explained.
“This is a real photo, not photoshopped, not a pano, not a Live Photo. If you can’t see the problem, please keep looking and then you won’t be able to unsee it.”
If you look closely at the image, you’ll notice it’s not an issue with the dress itself, but the placement of Tessa’s body – specifically, her arms.
You can see that as she was posing for the photo, she had her right arm raised to her midriff, while her left arm was down by her side.
However, in the reflection in one of the mirrors, both of her arms are raised, while in the other they’re both down.
What. The. Actual. Hell.
And if you were worried she’d just given away her wedding dress to the groom by allowing it to go viral online, Tessa added: “Lots of messages in support of the dress, thank you, God bless you, but I cannot stress how you couldn’t give me a million pounds to wear this cursed dress.”
She later added that she had ‘been to the Apple store for answers’, having spoken to a staff member called Roger – who told her he hadn’t seen a case as bad or ‘scary’ as hers, but that it did happen from time to time.
He told Tessa that, essentially, an iPhone is ‘not a camera, it is a computer’, meaning when it takes a photo it takes a burst of images very quickly – even though it’s not a live photo or on burst mode.
Roger said the camera will have crossed behind her back and in the ‘half a split second’ when she crossed her arms it’s made a ‘completely different image on the other side’.
“It’s made like an AI decision and it stitched those two photos together,” Tessa said he told her.
“And one very clever person on Twitter found the exact line on my back, it’s a tiny, tiny bit that’s not completely in line and that’s where the photos are stitched together.”
She added: “Roger said it was a million to one chance.”
