The Dress That's Freaking The Internet Out: Is It White And Gold Or Blue And Black??

Posted: Updated:

We don't really understand what's going on right now but "The Internet" is freaking out over #thedress and while we can't explain the phenomenon, we can definitely embrace it.

So, here's the deal: a photo of a dress appeared on Tumblr yesterday, which started an Internet firestorm that may never cease. (At least until the next Internet star comes along.)

Some people see the dress as white and gold, while others see it as blue and black.

Scottish musician Caitlin McNeill posted a picture of The Dress on Tumblr with the caption, "guys please help me — is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can't agree and we are freaking the f*** out." The post has already been viewed nearly 21 million times (!!!).

Update: Caitlin revealed to Roz and Mocha on KISS 92.5 the real colour of the dress.

Even celebrities can't figure out what colour the god damn dress is, and if they can't figure it out, who can??

If you want to get all science-y about it, head over to Wired to see their explanation of why the dress is actually black and blue. (Ahem, we think they're wrong, White and gold all the way!)

We can't believe this is a thing.
