There’s something weird and creepy in this lovely family photo – but only a few see what it is

When you see something, at first glance, it may appear completely normal – but when you take a closer look, surprising and interesting details (sometimes scary) can emerge.

Over the years, we’ve seen plenty of evidence of these kinds of pictures. Things like tricky optical illusions, or visual puzzles, have long fascinated humanity.

This may also be why these challenges usually spread like wildfire online.

One of the most famous pictures online, in the last few years, looks like an ordinary family photo. A Mom and dad with their four kids are sitting on a couch looking at the camera, pretty normal – however, there is something super weird with this photo.

A strange detail in the photo

Although everything looks natural, something is very wrong. But it is difficult to see it at first glance – that’s the whole point of the challenge. Find what’s wrong.

I myself had to take a long look before I figured out what was going on – but once I saw the strange detail, I couldn’t stop myself from laughing. Even if it’s also a bit scary.

Now check out the photo below. It looks like a wonderful and loving family, but something weird hides in the picture – a detail that changes everything.

Can you see what it is?

Did you find the strange detail in the picture?

If you succeeded, then your eyes are quite sharp, well done! I take my hat off to you.

The family knows

If you didn’t find it, we’ll show you the correct answer below. Look inside the red circle.

Look at that! A seventh person is buried under everyone.

We have to assume that the family is fully aware of this, otherwise, it is probably time to burn that haunted place to the ground and run away!

Probably they are just having fun, but it remains unclear who the person under the family is. What we can say, however, is that he or she probably wanted to get out as soon as the picture was taken – after being crushed by six other people for who knows how long.

This little fun detail made the photo go viral – not really a surprise. At least I got a good laugh out of this.

Now take a look at these other photos… Can you spot what’s wrong with them?

At first glace, it just seems like this group of young women is hanging out at the beach, commemorating their trip with a photo. They pose in their bikinis, but don’t know that there’s a man behind them.


Now take a closer look at that man, and now check out the faces of each woman… Do you see it?


That’s right! Every single woman in this group photo had the face of the man behind them. We’re fairly sure that this is the photo of a crafty photo editor, but it’s so easy to miss!

How about this one that’s a real head-scratcher?


It may not seem like there’s something off about this photo. It looks like a study hall or university auditorium, where students are taking notes in class.

But close to the center, there’s an adorable intruder. Do you see him?


It’s not even human! This furry four-legged friend is dropping into class, ready to learn by his human!

Here’s another beach one for you to check out…


All these pretty ladies in bikinis look so confident, but little do they know there’s an extra in the background. Do you see him?


There he is! He probably saw his chance to poke a little fun at the women, and posed exactly like them not knowing if he’d make it in the photo or not. It turns out, he did!

Now check out this couple kneeling at the altar on their wedding day. Such a touching scene! This husband and wife-to-be are ready to start their lives together… Or are they? Check out the photo for a clue…

Aunty Acid

Do you see it? Here’s a hint: look at the groom’s shoes.

Here it is:

Talk about getting cold feet!

Here’s one more for you. These young men are clearly having a great time, all dressed up for Halloween.


Now, take a closer look at the tree behind them. Everything seems normal until you see it… Did you figure it out?

When you do – wow! How creepy is that? I would totally freak out if I saw that behind me.


There’s a FACE in the tree! Hopefully, the man is just hiding behind it. If that’s his costume, he definitely went all out!

The last one! There is something off about this family picture. Look at the little girl on the left…. Cute, right?

But where did that hand on her arm come from? Creepy…

Some people have suggested that the hand belongs to mom, but some people believe that the older girl was photoshopped into the picture.

Have you seen anything creepy in any of your photos? Some people are convinced that ghosts have made appearances in their photos, for example. These may not be ghosts, but they are creepy either way!
