Challenging Color Test Hides Letters in Plain Sight

How well can you see color? Perhaps you’re a pro with one hue, but differentiating between two is a whole other story. To challenge your abilities, Buzzfeed Blue has created a short video with a simple test: identify the letter that’s hiding within plain sight.

The video features four rounds of two different color combinations, each more difficult than the last. In the beginning, when the hues offer a lot of contrast, you might think, “This is pretty easy! I’m great at identifying colors!” As the test goes on, however, the difference between the two becomes increasingly subtle. Coupled with a time limit, it’s seemingly impossible to figure out what letter is staring back at you.

Check out the video below. How many hidden letters can you spot?
