TV-Mirror Optical Illusion

Below is a young lady holding up a mirror to a monitor and in the mirror we see a different picture than what is actually being displayed on the monitor.

Two Images from one TV optical illusions image

How was this optical illusion created?

I will give you one clue, there is a real mirror used in the creation of this image.

For the answer go here.

i bet its just a picture of the moniter in reverse with a picture earlier taken that day.

no no no. my theory is that she switched between images while taking the photo. the light that the mirror reflects would take longer than the light coming from the monitor because it first has to travel to the mirror then bounce in the direction of the camera thus creating two images at one time.
