Swimming in pools is awesome. Playing pool is awesome. And seeing a floating pool ball illusion painted into a swimming pool is really awesome. Talk about luxury items, an in-ground heated pool is one thing but your very own optical illusion of your favorite bar sport professionally painted inside it is another thing. Again, it’s just one of those things you’ll have to see to really appreciate. And I think you will–I watched this video 3 times in a row to check out all the angles and how it came together.
“A graphic designer by training, videographer ‘Brusspup’ got into the illusion business three years ago, bringing his technical know-how to bear on a lifelong fascination.
“I love the challenge of trying to come up with a new twist on each illusion,” he told Yahoo! Games — and his latest effort does just that by giving a classic perspective trick some new flavor.
Not unlike sidewalk art, the illusion is anamorphic — it’s drawn in a distorted way so that, from a specific perspective, it looks like a normal object. But because this illusion has been captured on video, you can see the object take shape in real-time. It’s pretty awesome when it all comes together:”
Now am I right, or am I right? Don’t you want this guy to come over and paint something awesome in your pool?
