Of course the internet wasn't about to let 2019 slip by without one more meme to ring in the New Year, and this one's a doozy. In a post originally shared to his TikTok channel, 27-year-old creator Eric Tupper shared a video of a man on a swing in the middle of Winter, and it's basically the new yanny vs. laurel test. The video, which has over 1.7 million views, has sparked a huge debate reminiscent of the dress color argument about whether the man on the swing is facing toward the building in the background or toward the camera. What do you see?
The grainy video quality and angle of the shot make it difficult to pin down exactly which way the man in the video is facing, but my bet is that he's looking towards the camera — look at his arms! Twitter users seem to be pretty evenly split, going so far as to draw out the evidence they've collected to prove which direction he's facing, and there's a lot of it. Keep scrolling to piece together the clues for yourself and help solve this perplexing mystery.
