There are two teams. One in white, one in black. The white team passes the ball to only white team members. The black team only passes the ball to black team members. Can you follow the white team ball and tell us how many times they passed the ball? Its harder than it looks.

The big question is... did you see the gorilla walk by?
I first saw the video several years ago and - no, I didn’t see the monkey then.
Several years ago some teens I know thought they would pull a practical joke on me - the old guy. They showed me a youtube video of basketball players passing the ball and asked me to count the passes.
I watched the video with the kids eagerly watching me do it. When it was done I said, “The ball was passed 13 times and a guy in a bear suit walked through the scene in the middle of it.” The teens faces fell. “How did you both count the passes - and get the number right - AND see the bear?” they asked. Not a single one of them had done both when they first watched the video. Being old doesn’t mean being dumb.
