Anamorphis is a distorted image that, when viewed from a particular angle or perspective appears normal. The following video, which I believe is an ad for Ray-Ban sunglasses, gives an impressive example of anamorphis.

This again demonstrates how much our perception of reality is a product of our particular perspective or the angle from which we view the image. Special thanks are due to one of my students at Cuyamaca, who found this example as part of a homework assignment in my Critical Thinking class.
