    Wow... I saw this video about 20 times in high school. I`m usually one standing up for IAB, but it really is falling apart... Makes me sad.

    I remember when they did this on Brainiac or whatever it was called. When I realized the fact that the monkey (or chicken in their case) walked by without me noticing it, I got so scared that I couldn`t sleep the same day lol.

    @ toxicpunk:

    yeah, i`ve seen this video many times as a psych major in college. unfortunately, once you`ve seen it once the jig is up and you can`t not see the gorilla the first time around.

    Saw a better one before, where it was more spaced out, and made it harder to actually notice the bear. In this one, it was just too easy.
