Is This a “Magic” Mario Image?

Is This a “Magic” Mario Image?

Today on Facebook I ran across a blurry image of the Nintendo character Mario, with a caption that reads: “First SHARE then see MAGIC” and an additional description reads, “Share it, Go to ur wall & see the magic :D.” Have you shared this photo and wanted to know what the magic is?

There is no magic, other than sharing a blurry image of Mario. Basically you were tricked into sharing the image. The act of sharing an image will in no way change or alter the original, so it’s impossible that sharing an image will show anything other than what you’re already seeing in the original.

As of this writing, there were over 1300 shares of this image. So you might be asking what the point of this is? The point is to get more shares, which will get the page generating the image more likes. Tricking people into sharing helps them facilitate and expand their Facebook presence.

The image in question is below:
