    Not this shit again.

    She is not spinning in any direction really. Your brain can interpret it spinning in either direction.

    man this sucks she was going counter clockwise and then i read someone say clockwise and she turned which way she was spinning

    now I'm trying to see if i can control my perception at will

    so far it's a no go

    people are like "look at the shadow and it will start going the other way"

    but for me, the shadow is going anticlockwise and she's going clockwise

    HOLY CRAP I DID IT

    it only worked for a few seconds before i got so excited i stopped concentrating and it went back to clockwise

    but concentrate on bottom foot

    close your eyes and imagine it spinning the other way

    totally worked

    man this is fun

    The shadow on the floor seems to back up the counterclockwise perception. It shows her foot (once she's facing away) going from right to left.

    Jesus fuck it's all about how your brain interprets it at one point in the rotation.
    It's neither and both.

    how many times a month are we going to do this

    it spins both ways depending on how you look at it, and anyone with damaged brain facilities that can't see that is going to eat ten infractions and then i am going to come to their house and shit in their modem

    i can even see how the perspective is wrong if you assume her to be going clockwise, i just can't get her to stop

    the perspective is perfectly fine either way

    it's a flat silhouette which means there's no way of discerning what is near and far

    look

    exact same frame

    it can be either

    the problem is that whatever dipshit fuckass made this thing has it posed unnaturally and spinning all wobbly against a stupid gradient, which makes the counterclockwise rotation look awkward and unnatural

    when any rotating silhoutte can be seen to rotate either direction

    i came in here to post about this
    i havent had that problem with the other guys
    but fucking crow
    once hes turned around theres no getting him facing the right way again
    and i cant even look at the movie anymore
    just staring at him trying to fix it
    so i gotta avoid looking at crow for more than a brief glance

    Why did they feel the need to give her nipples?

    I mean, I know real actual girls sometimes have those but this was a thing that was on news-sites and someone made a conscious decision for those to be there.


    Also an easy way for me to reverse the spin is to look at the floor-reflection, visualize and blink.

    I mean, you know, because of course you care.

    I do not understand how you can interpret it going any other way than Counter Clockwise.

    I cannot get it to change...

    Even the shadow is going Counter Clockwise.
