Remember the crazy drama around the white and golden dress that went viral last year?
Well, the colour confusion is back again - but this time, with a twist!
It started once again, when Twitter user @positivedemi posted a photo of golden and white flip-flops.

Twitterati took it upon themselves to ask the million dollar question: what colour are the flip-flops?
The blue and black colour riddle is back again, my eyes tell me that those flip flops are blue and black.— Pollyann (@gaspshockbands) November 21, 2016
I see white and gold flip flops... what do you see? pic.twitter.com/I35iYnlNLp— Sam (@SamGolbach) November 20, 2016
The entire house is yelling at each other over if these gold and blue flip flops are white and grey 🙄— Rach (@RachaelMLandry) November 20, 2016
A serious question:
Yesterday the stupid flip flops looked blue and grey to me, today they're good and white. I forget how this works?— shameless (@yungbojenngles) November 21, 2016
This question has brought turmoil in lives of many Twitter users:
Just ended a friendship over the black and blue/white and gold flip flops— Lindsay Mitchell (@LindsJ_Mitchell) November 21, 2016
Right I thought the dress was blue and black but I think the flip flops are gold and white and now I'm questioning everything about life 🔫— Kevin (@thatspeckyguy) November 21, 2016
Meanwhile, Havaianas, the manufacturer of the flip-flops in question, played crucial role in solving the controversy. They made it a point to reach out to their customers and asking for their opinion. Result? It broke Facebook as well.<
This Twitter user gives some consolation:
Go to sleep Jane. At least stop worrying over what colour the flip flops are (blue and grey).— Jane Hamill (@janeybainy) November 21, 2016
How some Twitter users truly feel about the matter:
We feel you.

Social media first got trending with #TheDress in a similar fashion in 2015, after musician Caitlin McNeill posted a photo of a stripped dress on Tumblr, asking her fans whether the dress was white and gold or blue and black. The photo went viral striking debates over the colour of the dress.
