Mallrats - The Magic Eye Poster
Watch or fast forward to the part of the movie when TS and Brodie first encounter Willam Black. Willam is staring at a Magic Eye poster trying to see the hidden picture. He can't make it out, while Brodie and TS immediately realize the picture is of a sailboat.
If you freeze frame on the actual Magic Eye poster, and if you are able to see the picture in the poster, you'll realize that it ISN'T a sailboat at all, but rather three or four rows of geometric shapes: Stars on top, spheres in the middle, and triangle wedges pointing toward you on the bottom.

I don't think Kevin Smith was counting on people taking the time and the effort to look for the elusive "sailboat."

I think the moment might have been slowed down and the joke would not have been so funny if TS had stopped and said oh yeah its a bunch of multiple shapes and triangles pointing at us ect... But good eyes The Geek... I could never really see those things except for one they had on a box of teddy grahms.

I noticed this in the movie the first time i watched it. I didn't freeze the frame so that i could look at the magic eye poster. When i was younger i used to do magic eye all the time and i was, sadly, obsesed with them. In that split seccond shot of the poster, I could immediately tell that it wasn't a sailboat. I reckon that part of the film was intentional, to see how many geeks like us would pick up on it. Afterall, it wouldn't have been that hard to just use a real magic eye picture of a sailboat as they're surprisingly easy to make.
