Illusions can be downright freaky at times. Here's a tutorial on a baffling perspective illusion! This drawing is hard to believe until the proof is shown.

There is no way that the 2 thick, black lines are the same height, right? Let's look a little further into it and see.

Here's a video that showcases and explains the full effect of the illusion:
