Mind-bending optical illusion shows a couple hugging… but can you see what’s really going on with their legs?

GO out on a limb and see if you can work out what's afoot in this brain-bending photo.

The viral pic of two people embracing on a beach has left millions asking the same question: whose legs are whose?

The image – titled "This hurts my brain" – had had more than two million views since it was posted on Reddit in 2016.

And people were left wondering if what they were seeing was even possible.

Some said the woman appears to be lifting the man off the ground – but her legs are in front of her partner while her torso is behind.

“I need an adult to help me here,” one Reddit user wrote in the comments.

Another said: "I don't like this… it's messing with me too much."

The answer, it turns out, lies in the man's two-tone shorts.

One Reddit sleuth revealed: "His shorts are two colors. White in the middle, black on the outside. I'm fun at parties, please invite me."

Another said: "OK this makes sense. The guy is wearing shorts that are black and white.
