"Seeing pink elephants" hay "see snakes" là cụm thành ngữ chỉ hiện tượng ảo giác dẫn tới nhìn thấy những vật không thật bởi vì quá say/nhiễm độc rượu hoặc vì đang trong quá trình cai nghiện.

Ví dụ
I don’t party as hard as I used to. I prefer stuff that keeps you grounded in the real world, so you’re not seeing pink elephants.

As a holiday treat, this Belgian Strong Ale is hard to beat. At 10 percent ABV, though, don’t over-imbibe (uống nhiều) or you’ll be seeing pink elephants everywhere.

Controversies (sự tranh luận) engendered (sinh ra) by the first “Dumbo,” as well as the weight of current political and social causes, include, but are not limited to, the use of alleged (được cho là) racism (phân biệt chủng tộc) in the form of jive-talking black crows (quạ) in 1941; baby Dumbo drinking champagne and seeing “pink elephants,”; and the demands by the People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals that the new movie prove animals are better-off (= in a better situation) in their natural habitat, rather than in a circus.
