Can You Spot the Keyboard Hiding Among the Zebras?

What's black and white, striped, and driving the internet crazy? This latest hidden-picture puzzle from Holiday Gems. Part of a keyboard—the musical instrument, not the tool you use to type, mind you—is hiding among a zeal of zebras. (And yes, that's an acceptable collective noun for a group of zebras.) Can you manage to find the hidden image?

According to the UK-based holiday booking site, it takes the average person over one minute to find the keyboard, and the record stands at 58 seconds. The key to creating a really perplexing puzzle is using patterns that trick the brain. One popular optical illusion, for example, uses red, green, and black lines to induce something called the McCollough effect. If you stare long enough, it can actually affect your vision for days or even months at a time.

This zebra puzzle won't have you seeing stripes, but the repetition of the pattern does overwhelm the senses and make it difficult to find the hidden object. When you give up staring at the image above, scroll down to find out where the keyboard is concealed.

The Office-Themed Ugly Christmas Sweaters Are Here to Show Off Your Dunder Mifflin Spirit

Target

It's now easier than ever to gift your loved ones with Dunder Mifflin-inspired Christmas presents, thanks to Target's new The Office collection. What does it include, you ask? Ugly Christmas sweaters with Dwight Schrute's face and the paper company's logo on them.

As reported by POPSUGAR, Target is selling two different holiday sweaters—one featuring Dwight's festive face and another, more general Dunder Mifflin one—on its website, each priced at $29.99. It seems the NBC series' popularity will never die, as companies continue to sell The Office-related products, from cool artwork to construction sets.

While fans continue to binge The Office on Netflix, they know that major changes are ahead. NBCUniversal is launching its own streaming platform, Peacock, and will take the show back in January 2021. In the meantime, you can still soak up as much Dunder Mifflin insanity as you can handle via Netflix—and now you can do it decked out in a festive holiday sweater.
