Scary optical illusion will ‘make you hallucinate’ and shrink the room around you

A startling optical illusion gives the impression that the space around you is getting smaller.

The illusion was presented by a TikTok magician in a video that has received over 1.2 million likes and 6.6 million views.

I'm about to hypnotize you, induce hallucinations, and cause you to believe that your room is getting smaller," he stated.

A moving abstract black-and-white pattern with a red dot in the middle can be seen in the video.

Seany warned viewers not to take their eyes off the moving dot after previously captivating social media with an illusion that rendered some individuals colorblind.

Blink if necessary, but keep your focus on the dot, the speaker continued.

Look aside into your room after continuing to stare for a further 10 to 15 seconds, and the walls should start to appear smaller.

One reader shouted, "MY LIVING ROOM WAS SHRINKING.

Another commented, "I'm outside and it still worked."
