The clip was posted to TikTok a couple of days ago, before being swept up in a Twitter storm.

The internet seems to be split directly down the middle as to which way he's facing, with some baffled viewers even able to see him swing in both directions.

Thousands of Twitter users have muscled in on the debate providing arguments and diagrams to prove which way they believe the man is facing.

The argument is similar to 2014's The Dress.

Shopper Cecilia Bleasdale shared a photo of a £ 50 black and blue dress she was thinking of wearing to a wedding.

But to thousands the dress appeared white and gold-not black and blue.

According to Cecilia's daughter, Caitlin: "What happened was two of my close friends were actually getting married and the mother of the bride took a photo of the dress to send to her daughter.

"When my friend showed the dress to her fiancee, they disagreed on the colour. All our friends disagreed on the colour."

Soon celebs like Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber and Taylor swift waded in on the argument that was baffling the world.

Eventually it was confirmed that the original dress was blue and black, as experts rushed forwards with explanations as to why some of us saw it as white and gold.

One possible explanation was that it could be due to what time we get out of bed.

And in 2018 a soundbite posted to Reddit caused a similar storm.

No one could decide whether the computer-generated voice in the clip was saying "Laurel" or "yanny".

According to one expert, University of Arizona's Brad Story the original recording said: "Laurel," but it was down to "frequency" and "the mechanics of your ears" what each individual could decipher.

He told National Geographic : "Most sounds – including L and Y, which are among the ones at issue here – are made up of several frequencies at once ... frequencies of the Y might have been made artificially higher, and the frequencies that make the L sound might have been dropped. "

"The reason it can be confused is that there is a family of frequencies produced by the shape of our throat and mouth."

It's The Dress all over again ...
