I was shown this at school a few years ago. Watch this video, and count how many times the people in White pass the ball.

Now lets see who can focus...

And lets see who spots the Gorilla xD

I stopped counting when the guy in the gorilla suit walked on screen. I guess that was the point?

If you were focusing, you wouldn't have seen him :p I didn't see it the first time, but I was wondering why people were laughing at nothing :vlol:

I think it's reached the point where most people have seen it and know what's going to appear.

^ Pretty much what I was going to say. Though the first time I saw it on Brainiac I completely missed spotting the gorilla. :pi:

I've seen this before, besides, I read jayjay's post before I hit play, so I was looking for the gorilla :p. I counted 13.

I didn't bother counting anything, I just skipped to the end to find out how many passes there were. That may not count for much when it comes to selective attention, but I win for taking the easiest route to the answer :ohn:

Well, that is one way to miss the gorilla, true, but it also completely misses the point of the thing. :D

I counted 14, but I found the very beginning of the video the most distracting part. After a few seconds I could see what was going on. So I guess I missed one pass in that time window. :)
