    "What an A hole".

    Interestingly (to me at least), when I showed this to my wife and daughter they we're all "yeah, so? It looked 3D before they turned it" But for my son and I, we didn't see it at all until the turn where we both pulled a Keanu Reeves "whoa"

    There's a cut at 17 seconds where they replace the drawing with the thing with the hole in it.

      No, you're wrong. That's just when they switch from time-lapse to handheld camera. I took a screen shot and did a reverse perspective distort on it and the lines still line up.

    This is the kind of thing, common on the Internet, which look amazing on video, but only because video is 2D. In real life it looks crap, since it’s still a flat drawing, and in read life you can see that.

      Not quite; this is more of a trick as called out before -- between 0:22 & 0:23 an impossible thing happens, where the camera perspective shifts and distances change non-linearly. It's well played, though.

      This is the kind of thing, common on the Internet, where someone sees a neat, harmless thing and still finds a way to take a stinky poop on it.

      This is pointing to the thing of it, in general on the Internet underneath the opened eyes of a Flatland face, up and down gets frowned upon as heresy. What will the strange loops of Escher’s Drawing Hands lifted wrists pop up in the land of interpreting the silly and the sublime?

    Phule's comment about his wife and daughter's response to the drawing reminded me of this researcher's mention of a difference between biological male and female participants dependence on parallax vs "shape-from-shading" to see depth. https://qz.com/192874/is-the-oculus-rift-designed-to-be-sexist/
