10 Times Everyday Objects Were Actually Pop Culture Icons In Disguise

Posted on Fun 38

For those who haven’t yet heard, pareidolia is a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists. To put it simply, it’s a bug in the human mind that causes it to see things that aren’t really there. For example, you look at a regular tap but see Ice Age’s acorn-obsessed Scrat or you glance at a juicy cinnamon roll but it becomes an anguished E.T.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of images of everyday objects so you can find out if you have the peculiar condition as well. Scroll down to test your eyes and if you see these everyday objects transform into pop culture icons, you’re a pareidoliac!
