Exactly one year after #TheDress divided the Internet over what colour it was, another sartorial choice has surfaced threatening to do much the same on popular blogging site Tumblr.
Social media users are abuzz, with many wondering what connection February 26 has with optical illusions; but the majority of queries restricted themselves to pondering the colour of the new article of clothing, an Adidas jacket.
Many, of course, took time out of their busy schedules to express their horror at yet another example of how light works.

Earth-shattering news indeed.
While the original dress, a Roman Originals black and blue, retails for £15 (approximately Rs 1,500), the Adidas jacket is more than two times its price.
It seems Buzzfeed wasn’t the only one which got some money from the viral picture last year.
