Another mysterious optical illusion with a dress goes viral on the web

Remember earlier this year when social media exploded with the controversy about the dress that was either black and blue, or white and gold? Now there’s a new viral dress pic making the rounds, but this one has a much simpler explanation. A woman who goes by the name Beedat walked into a room somewhere and realized her dress matched the speckled linoleum and blue-carpeted floor, so she did the smart thing and had somebody take a picture of her lying down in just the right spot, which will now be known as “wearing the floor,” then she posted it on Imgur:

Wearing the floor..

Now the image has almost 2 million views. I wonder if she wishes she’d shown her face in the picture?
