WACO, Texas -

A convincing decal on the back of a tailgate is creating a stir in one Texas community.  On the surface, it looks like a woman tied up in the back of a truck, but it's actually an optical illusion made by a sign company in Waco, TX. 

If you were driving down the road and saw the decal what would you do?  
Of course reactions have been mixed with many saying abduction or any violence against women isn't funny or cute.

"I wasn't expecting the reactions we got nor was I really condoning this but it was more or less something we put out there to see who notices this?" said Brad Cobb, owner of Hornet Signs.

Since the decal has hit the streets, the company says it's seen an influx in tailgate decal orders.
