For those of you who have avoided any sort of digital screen for the past 36 hours, a random blog post has come about as close as anything has ever come to breaking the Internet. Tumblr user Swiked uploaded a photo of a seemingly innocuous dress with the subtle caption, “guys please help me – is this dress white and gold, or blue and black? Me and my friends can’t agree and we are freaking the f*ck out.” Well, have no fear, users of the Internet! The men of Manchester City are here to help.
More specifically, Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri, Pablo Zabaleta, Wilfried Bony and Yaya Toure are more or less willing to weigh in on the subject, with opinion ranging from somewhat indifferent (Nasri) to seemingly furious (Toure). The best answer, however, goes to Bony: “Okay, it’s black. I’m black. It’s black.”
