'Platform 9 34s' by Matt Pritchard: Winner of 2023 Best Illusion of the Year Prize

Maker's description:

The illusion is of a LEGO car driving through a solid wall.

The reality is there is a car-sized hole in the middle of the wall for toy to drive through.

The missing brick work is replaced by an anamorphic illusion on the floor behind the wall.

When viewed from one perspective, the vertical bricks and horizontal bricks line up and appear to be one solid wall.

The pattern camouflages the edges and makes it extremely hard to distinguish any discontinuities.

FunFact: Pritchard also won in 2021.

You could look it up.
