This week saw the internet go crazy over a picture of a dress that appeared to be different colors to different people. It didn’t take long for creative minds to take advantage of the situation.

Referencing the same two stories, Dan Meth created an illustration to commemorate Buzzfeed’s biggest traffic day ever.
Redditor epwnym posted a sequence from The Matrix that inserted the dress into the drama.
