I saw something like this a long time ago. I knew the gorilla (or something like it) was coming. It distracted me.

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.

@ 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.

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.
