Awareness Test


#1

I failed


#2

try watching that without laughing, fuck, i failed.


#3

This is better....

try watching that without puking.


#4

That's fuckin' awesome.


#5

That's sort of cheap... the bear is black and blends in with the other people. If the bear was, say, brown I doubt most people would miss it. Maybe not.


#6

I think the whole concept is a bit cheap to get people to be aware.


#7

Great, are people really going to start posting about how it wasn't "fair"?

Methinks some of you take yourselves too seriously. It's supposed to be funny.


#8

lol. How do you guys not notice a dancing bear!? That shit was great.


#9

Or if the bear was wearing bicycle shorts and fluorescent decals.


#10


I totally missed the bear the first time through.


#11

Lol I competely missed the bear, finally noticed the bear after watching the 3rd time in full screen.


#12

so... when the narrator asked if you saw the dancing bear, and you watched it the second time, you still did not see the dancing bear? :slightly_smiling:


#13

I didn't, lol


#14

Lol @ one of the youtube comments. "I think I would have seen him if he were on a bicycle."


#15

I'll be sure to keep an eye out for bears riding bicycles, those other bastards hogging the road are fair game.


#16

Yeah but you have shaking boobs for an avatar, so you're excused. They make awareness go down - Took me the better part of half an hour to notice you actually wrote something in your post...


#17

Actually there are lots of psychology experiments just like this that aren't suppose to be funny. I was pointing out that this was a fishy one...

Is it funny? I don't think so, but I've seen these sorts of things way to much.


#18

Nope, I had to go back and watch it a third time in full screen to finally see the bear.


#19

While I don't feel humor was the main theme of this ad, how is a moonwalking bear NOT supposed to be funny?

The one thing I DID hate about it is when I was told to look for the moonwalking bear, I squinted and stared really hard at the background behind everyone, thinking maybe it was going to be an outline or silhouette or something subtle like that... boy did I feel like a jackass when I caught on.


#20

I thought it was pretty funny.
