    Huh, that`s funny; I`d be in the < 10%. I counted 12 passes and I noticed the extra person shaped blob on the screen. :-D
    Didn`t realize what it was that she was doing until the second time though.

    Not that many people notice her because they`re looking at the box when it`s high in the air, while that girl that walks by is short. It takes your attention off of the middle of the screen towards the top....

    I only watched cause I saw this while it was on tv, I never noticed the fly when I caught it then so I just wanted to make sure it was really there the first time and they didn`t just say it walked through to mess with me.

    dammit I was watching the wrong box. I don`t care about the bee I care about the box. There were yellow boxes too which I didn`t realise till the second time round.

    I remember watching this on the TV and I noticed the bee first time. Then my dad watched it, didn`t notice first time and even when it was pointed out that there was a bee he still didn`t notice!! Talk about stupid.

    Yes that is Richard Hammond of Top Gear fame, he also does Brainiac (Sky Tv Production) and has his own show on ITV each weekday at 5 o`clock.

    Hammond and Clarkson are well funny

    "11 and i ended up counting the wrong box, didn` tsee her but thats only cuase my eyes were focused on the box and not hte other ppl moving around not because of a brain overload."

    That`s exactly what inattentivie blindness is. It`s not seeing something because your attention was focused on something else. It`s not "brain overload". Your visual cortex doesn`t just shut down or something.

    That was very interesting. I give myself credit for noticing that someone else walked on the screen, lol....albiet they were in a freakin` bee suit.


    I thought I was more observant than that.

    I like that weird sensory trickery stuff. ^.^

    they stole this whole god damn show from the history channel. the history channel did the exact same thing about FOUR YEARS AGO, except the bee was more obvious and a bear. they should quit jacking other peoples work and do their own poo.

    Richard Hammond is well into his 30s for all you teens out there findingn him adorable because he`s short. He also whores himself out as a presenter, I think he`s doing three programmes at once now.

    I counted 12 and noticed somthing walking in. I just didn`t know it was a fly. I went a display in a museam about inatentive blindenss and they had a very cool experiment where one thing in a picture showing a city block would change and you have to notice it. It was pretty hard.

    Ha Ha I`m a moron. I`ve seen something like this before (but with a guy in a bear suit, a bear suit!) so I knew not to count, and to look for something odd. I found it, there`s a mannequin in the back cut in I completely missed the bee...moron! ;-)
