At first glance, it seems like any other ordinary picture of a group of friends during a night on the town.

But take a closer look and you’ll notice something strange: the girl in the front, with the black dress and drink in hand has a rather long arm.

Or so it seems.

The tweet quickly gained more than 2500 retweets and had many people muddled.

Fast forward two days and @HORR9R had the answer to all of the confusion.

Let’s break it down:

The girl with the supposed lengthy limb has her drink in one hand, while the other is wrapped around the back of the guy standing next to her.

The smiling brunette on the opposite side of the guy has her one arm folded across her chest, while her other arm is bent in the same direction. But because all three of them are wearing black, it creates the illusion of one oddly long arm.

And there you have it – mystery solved. At least we can rest assured that there’s not a possible new Guinness World Record holder for a freakishly sized body part.
