The brilliant Christmas-themed drawing was created by Hungarian artist Gregerly Dudás, who then shared it on his personal page.
He told his followers there was a panda among these many different festive snowmen, asking if they could spot the dark panda. What seems like an easy task has quickly gone viral, driving thousands crazy and begging the question: can YOU spot the panda? Be honest!
After just a few days, Dudás woke up to 42,000 likes and 100,000 shares on his newest creation. The best part was that most people still couldn’t find the panda, some seriously doubting it’s existence.
Gary Pearsall joined in, commenting, “There ain’t no panda in there!” Darren Fox added, “Been looking for 15 mins still can’t find it lol.”
On the other end of the spectrum, some views claim to have found the panda as quickly as five seconds after first viewing the picture. Out of all the mind-bending puzzles that this talented artist shares, this Christmas-themed one is definitely the most popular – and the most frustrating!
After the panda took the internet by storm, Dudas released several more similar images, asking his followers to find the cat in another illusion. Others have been released asking followers to find more hidden animals in illusion images similar to this one featuring the panda.
If you remember the classic Where’s Waldo cartoons and were a fan of them, you will definitely enjoy Dudas’s work and his mind rattling illusions.
Dudas told one news publication, “The popularity of the ‘panda’ picture amazed me, I still can’t believe it, but it makes me really happy! Glad to see how people like something I made.”
While this particular image is winter or Christmas themed, it’s popularity has staying power and is not going away anytime soon. People love the work of Dudas and he should be very proud of that.
“I’m not a professional, I do it as a hobby, but I really like it,” Dudas told another news outlet.
