How did you not notice the freaky fly thingy? I saw it, lost count, got weirded out, and will now have nightmares.
btw, I watched this without sound, so... I dunno if I count. I`m just going off what I see people have posted.
I counted like... 20 passes. I`m silly. You`re silly!

I counted the 12 passes and saw the weird bee person. :O Though I wasn`t really looking at it, so I just though it was a really really ugly Brainiac that had to wear a bag on its head.

okay, I DID count twelve, and there is NO person in a bee suit. There is a girl, with a t-shirt that is the same t-shirt that everyone else is wearing, and she flaps her arms up and down a few times, and maybe has a ski mask on... NO bee.

Lol I noticed it but that`s because I remember seeing this on G4 back when it was still on it. I wish I could still watch that show. That and mythbusters are the best retard science show. I say retard science because it`s science but it`s not like normal science shows. What normal science show finds the best cure for a hangover?

lol i counted 11 ;/ I thought it was going to be about that it was passed to a person that was unnoticed (like the bee), but I suppose if it was passed to the bee then people would notice the bee

Like Kirby218, I thought I was smart when I got the number right, until I missed the bee.

So who noticed his shirt change? It bothered me that it was from blue to brown, but it wasn`t really a "Hey his shirt changed!". More like a something isn`t right/the same.

I saw the bee....I wanted to start counting again to try and get the score correct but, I was too distracted by that poo. Like, dude...theres a dancing bee on my screen. What will it do to me if I dont keep my eye on it? Am I allergic to bees? Needless to say i watched it till it walked away...stupid bee. I only counted 10.

i`m with piratepig, I didn`t see the bee untill the guy in the film said "Notice, Theres a dancing bee" cuz even though I stopped counting the passes, I was still watching the lunchbox, expecting there to be an explaniation of something like "good you counted 12, however notice this here which makes it 11" etc.

This is a pretty common experiment, but still cool- I got the number of passes correct but did not at all notice the bee.

And it`s very odd mostly because the host is also on Top Gear and I thought, "shouldn`t he be talking about cars now?"

I was already expecting this. There was another video posted that was of the same trick but a different set. In the other video a monkey suit walked out and waved and what not. I was able to count the lunch box passes and keep up with it while still noticing the fly guy.

Somehow I saw the bee, but miscounted. Half-way through, I thought that the two black lunch boxes got switched around to trick you. As I counted the first time basically my mind went "4...the hell? A guy in a weird mask doing the chicken dance? Well, whatever...5...6..."
