Default How do you use these jumper cables?

I saw this on Jay Leno's Headlines website.

Tell me, do you know how these work?

You need 2 of them to make it work.

How the heck did they do that?

Jeremiah, unless my eyes are tricking me, those wouldn't work at all even if you had to of them. The two cables are not on the same line; therefore, they connect to nothing visible on the other end.

It appears to be an optical illusion, but I believe the red and black ends loop somewheres in the middle but you cannot see it.

That was what I thought based on the looks. It really wouldn't make sense to use an optical illusion for an ad for jumper cables. Funny that they would use an optical illusion for an ad.

They do that to catch peoples attention and make them think about the add.

The first thing you notice is where are the 4 booster cable clamps and then the next thing you notice is the red and black wires appear as one solid wire.

Hmmm...they never told us about that in any of my classes. I guess my instructors need to get on the ball with this stuff. The problem though is some ads like this can actually work against them though. Some people might develop the association that this place does not have complete equipment (an illogical conclusion granted, but it still happens).
