Curious man asking if his tv remote control is black or purple

TV viewers found a new source of entertainment right in their hands when a Roku customer discovered a bizarre secret.

The excited man made a video to share the discovery with his TikTok followers, who either marveled at the colorful illusion or claimed it didn’t work with their own devices.

Chris Angelis held up his Roku remote and spoke quickly direct at the camera.

“That’s a purple remote, this remote is purple,” Angelis said.

Then he took the back of the remote control and held it up to the light where it appeared to be a translucent purple.

“It looks black, no, it’s purple!” he exclaimed.

Angelis tagged Roku in the TikTok caption, prompting the company to explain and declare, “I WAS DECOOLED.”

But he also recognized that he might be the last to make the realization: “Wait, I’m the only one who didn’t know,” Angelis wrote.

Angelis wasn’t the only person unaware that the remotes were actually purple, but some commenters scoffed at his discovery.

“This is how light/color works,” explained one annoyed commenter.

“Black is made with blue dye, it will look purple.”

Other viewers ran to find their remotes to see if the seemingly black remotes were actually a different color.

“I immediately grabbed mine next to me and checked. She’s purple!” wrote one viewer.

“I was convinced mine wasn’t until I placed it directly on the lamp. IT’S PURPLE,” said another person.

“Mine is black, I just checked it’s not even see-through,” said one viewer, while several commenters responded that their remotes are, too.

For those who discovered their own remote controls were purple, the revelation came as a shock.

“My life is a LIE,” wrote one viewer.
