You've most certainly seen people trying to pinch the top of the Eiffel Tower in an effort to look like they're holding it, or pushing the Leaning Tower of Pisa so it won't fall. 

Forced perspective photography is the art of optical illusion in tourists' photos. Foreigners on vacation will try any trick to get such photos as souvenirs and social media posts. 

And as of recently, it seems like forced perspective is a freshly revamped trend sweeping social media... 

Here are some of the best pictures taken at Arab landmarks:
