Photo Goes Viral For Strange Reason

A photo of a fisherman on a beach has gone viral, with more than 150,000 views in less than 24 hours.

The Imgur user first uploaded the photo Feb. 19 with the caption "Why does this fisherman look like Harambe walking on the beach?" Harambe the gorilla was shot and killed at a Cincinnati zoo in May 2016 after a boy snuck into his enclosure.

Although the photo is simply a fisherman bending down to inspect a fish, people think the man looks like a gorilla facing away from the camera. 

"I looked it, read the title, looked at it again... still briefly thought it was a gorilla," one user wrote, reports the Daily Star.

Most commentators compared the man to Harambe.

"Why does harambe look like a fishermen," one user wrote.

"Harambe's alive!" another person joked.

Other users barely could make out the optical illusion, saying it was a stretch to see the shape of a gorilla.

"You have to squint," one person suggested.
