M&M come in practically any color you want. The last time I looked, the M&M store in NYC even have a gray section -- with black, white, and lots of shades of gray in between.

many colors can be found here. There are at least three stores now, in Las Vega, New York and Orlando, and one scheduled to open in London, all according to the wikipedia.

Does it always move the same direction? Or is it one of those that can switch if you watch it long enough?

Any idea how many shades of gray they had. 50 maybe?

You're thinking of the S&M store.

(Also sorry)

I dont mind. I just open my mouth wide and stare at it.

I exploded the gif just to check where the white / black lines come from. Turns out that is not an illusion either. They appear in individual frames.
