The illusion is obvious if you think about it, but it's so strong an illusion, it's hard not to be fooled. I was initially tricked by it as well - I knew how it had to be done, but I was wrong about some of the details. There's a way to do it that is much easier than my idea. All you have to remember is that there are many things that can be fake things instead of real things.
Another reason I like it? It's whimsical.
