I saw 15 passes and the gorilla. I guess I missed the point of this vid.

Of course the test is deceptive. He asks us to count the number of times the players wearing white pass the basketball. There are two basketballs. Plural.

The first time I watched this video, I missed the gorilla. It was amazing. Now, however, I know that it's coming, so I always notice it. I think even just knowing from the outset that the video has something to do with an invisible gorilla may affect it. Your attention has to be on the basketballs.

As for the checklist, I thought it was great - but I'm wondering about the "which"-hunting. I know that the proper use of "which" is a subject of controversy. After reading some of the arguments on both sides, I'm inclined to believe that what's most important is how it sounds.
