Now take a closer look – particularly at the mirror in the back of the picture. Notice anything off? That’s right – though the girl in the picture is facing the camera and away from the mirror – you can also see her face fully reflected in the mirror, giving the illusion that the girl in question has two faces.
Well, it’s because even though the mirror reflects the back of man’s head, it does not reflect same for the girl! Yes, it instead shows her smiling FACE.
Initial reactions to the image express horror and shock. ‘Delete this,’ demanded one Twitter user. Also expressing peoples’ confusion were plenty of GIFs of dogs freaking out and priests waving crosses. Though this seems a casual thing to say, some feel it directly explains the weirdness in the photo.

A Gemini is a sign of the zodiac that is represented by twins. Thus, people often stereotype those born under the sign of the Gemini has been ‘two-faced’ or having split personalities.
However, at the end of the day, it was a winning day for meme lovers who got some of the most innovative and hilarious results out of this creepy situation. While we all agree with the explanation and understand that the image was doctored, we cannot help but wonder at the beautiful work of art.
