    This isnt an illusion. All they did was play the static that made the shape slower. So obviously you will see it.

    That's not an illusion, it's just a part of the static moving faster in the shape of a rabbit so that it stands out from the slower static in the background.

    Is this supposed to be an April fool's joke or something?

    Shape from motion only? This is ineffably asinine. Were the judges all Jewish? Oy vey.

    It doesn't count when the "illusions" in the static (bunnies, faces etc.) have a different speed, brightness and/or pattern than the background static.

    I had a book full of optical illusions when I was kid back in the 90's. I think the people who made the book would be disappointed in this.

    Can someone explain to me how this is an optical illusion? The motion creates the image, how is it an illusion?
