How this video didn’t win “Best Illusion of the Year Contest 2016” defies logic, although really it just speaks to the magnitude of how mind-blowing the actual winner was. And don’t go ranting about how “Oh this probably only works at a certain angle” or “Omg this is so simple EVEN A BABY COULD DO IT,” because while yes, he’s only rotating a block of tubes around, it’s not like you would’ve ever come up with something like this on your own. Don’t lie. You are not that smart, nor are you that knowledgeable on the mechanics of light refraction. That’s not to say that I’m any better – not like I’m over here, wearing a magician’s cape slidin’ stuff around and watching it change shape in a mirror. But you gotta give credit where credit is due, and this guy deserves a fuckload of it.
