Top curve is longer than the bottom curve, probably shot at an angle too, it's a good one though.

If you watch the whole gif it shows that the curves are the same size...

No... Both pieces of paper are the same size, but on each piece of paper there are two curves, at the top and at the bottom, the top curve is longer than the bottom.

My apologies. when you said curves I thought that you were talking about the papers themselves..

So its being shot on a slant...

It's an overhead shot of a multi platform.
The platform below A is higher, closer to the camera, making it appear larger.
The platform above A is lower, further away from the camera, making it appear smaller.
Placing B on A shows they're the same size.

Look at the left side of the shapes, the top corners are not in-line, the bottom one is further to the right.

Pretty obvious.

That's retarded, the hand obviously doesn't move up or down much so it's not a multi platform or whatever. It's simple curves.
Both objects are the same size and the curves on the inside (bottom) of the object are smaller, while the curves on the outside (top) are smaller.
This causes the mind to believe that one object is bigger when in reality it's just the length of the side that's bigger.

It's simple illusion, Notice that the B is displaced from the center unlike the A on the other strip, when you line up the sides so that they make a continuous line it gives the illusion of one or the other being bigger or smaller.

Yeah, that's what I said.

The table is not slanted. It has to do with the form of the two pieces. The lower just appears to be longer because it is actually more to the right. Since the two edges to the left form a straight line, it tricks the the brain to think that both start at the same place. If you use your fingers to measure the width of both pieces, you'll see they are both as long as each other, no matter where they are placed.

Simple answer? the table is slanted, and they purposely covered it in some fabric and uploaded this with poor quality to hide that fact.

Fun answer? Magnets.
