What Color Is This Dress? We Can’t Figure It Out!
Not since David After Dentist has something so captivated the internet.
A picture of a dress on Tumblr asking people to figure out the color completely took over the web Thursday evening, with a sharp divide between whether it’s gold and white or blue and black.
The dress has sparked a fervor the likes of which you don’t see outside of, say, a bride on the hunt for a dress for her big day. It’s become a huge trending topic on Twitter, with people chiming in with all sorts of thoughts. One thing is for certain — people are definitely seeing red over this because they are getting all worked up.
No matter what color you think it is, this appears to be this generation’s issue to solve. Good luck, America!
We need a new term for orders of magnitude higher than 'viral'. I nominate "social pandemic." Please retweet so this sticks. #TheDress

#TheDress more like the reason families are getting in fights and couples splitting up

If only we could harness the energy used to talk about #thedress to somehow solve hunger and homelessness.

Just stop it. The stupid dress looks different depending on lighting. Just like everything else in the universe. #whatcoloristhisdress
