TikTok user @toripareno showed off an optical illusion which makes it look as though one of her hands is going through the other.

"My hands we're viewed half a million times. creepy but cool," she later joked.

For reference, the song in the video is the intro to 'Bounce' by Timbaland feat. Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, and Dr. Dre.

While the hand trick looks like it would be fairly easy to pull off, people definitely had to practice the fast hand movements to get it right.

People started sharing their attempts at the viral hand trick.

Not everyone could get the hang of it right away.

Mostly, people just found it "trippy".

Speed is definitely your friend when it comes to pulling the trick off so grab a mirror and get practising.
