This mind-bending video will leave you scratching your head – as what appears to be a view from a plane window turns out to be something very different.
The deceptive footage, shot in Turkey by Kadriye Akalin, at first has you fooled into thinking it was taken from the comfort of an airliner high up in the sky.

The devious footage, shot in Turkey by Kadriye Akalin, at first has you fooled into thinking it was taken from the comfort of an airliner high up in the sky
The ‘window frame’ turns out to be the handle of a plastic bottle – filmed on the ground in the Turkish countryside.
Ms Akalin, from Izmir, described the inspiration behind the video, saying: ‘I had seen a video of someone doing something similar, it was a very funny video so I wanted to give it a go.
‘I posted the video online originally not really expecting much – but then it started getting a lot of attention.’
The post has now been liked more than 56,000 times and received hundreds of comments – many of which outline how unexpected the illusion was.
‘I am surprised that so many people liked the video. It was meant to be just a simple joke,’ said Ms Akalin.
‘All I did was tell people to wait until the end of the video for a surprise.’
As Ms Akalin pans out it emerges that the footage was not taken from the plush airliner you imagined, but was filmed through the handle of a plastic bottle
Among the comments left on the video were: ‘Crazy, I really thought it was the window of a plane.’
Another said: ‘I thought there was gonna be an eagle or something landing on the wing of the plane.’
Others thought similarly, with one user saying: ‘Was 100 per cent expecting a bird to crash into the window. You got me. I feel very stupid right now.’
One deemed the video more surprising than anticipated, saying: ‘Even expecting the unexpected, that was pretty unexpected.’
And another said: ‘Got me hook, line, and sinker. I was waiting for something crazy to happen outside the plane window. Never saw the plastic bottle coming. Well done.’
