They look exactly alike..

This question, with a photo of two women, appeared in a national magazine. Most people can’t figure it out. So you turn the page of the magazine to see a photo of a car, with the following line below it:

The quiz turned out to be an ad for a Ford SUV. The ad said,

But, having the foresight to come up with one is something completely different. Smart, innovative ideas require unconventional thinking. You have to think without boundaries. The result: 123 major innovations.”
