    okay, much as I hate to admit it, I'm not seeing this. What am I suppose to see?

    Parts of their faces have been inverted (eyes and mouth in the man; nose and mouth in the girl). It appears normal when viewed when the people are upside down, but is apparent (at least for most) when viewed the other way.
