Not only did I not see the man in the ape costume walk out, I actually said to myself in the back of my head "14. The hell are these people laughing at? 15. 16."

I saw this one first, so I knew what was coming:

So who else went back and went "no way!" because I totally didn't. incidentally that was awesome.

any chance of getting this whole speech on here?

thats from the Ted Talks website, i didn't watch it all the way through yet but for some reason I think it doesn't have this part in it?

I actually caught it the first time around, since he walks right into the path of observation after thumping his chest. Funny, though.

When I first saw it I thought, "Are they trying to make me lose count by having a stupid gorilla walk across the screen?" A good theory I heard is that it doesn't work on the generation of kids growing up with quick cut MTV editing.

I hate this clip though. It's often used in Law classes to teach about the inaccuracies of eye witness testimonies and to discredit them. Counting bastketball passes is somehow supposed to equate to focusing your attention on an attacker's weapon instead of their face.

I've been tricked by this kind of thing before, but not this time. Still it's awesome, in the same way that watching a magic act and being tricked is awesome.

There was something else exactly like this submitted before, so I didn't fall for it this time.

Always a fun time though.

I'm guessing most of you suck at 2D shooters
