I did notice the gorilla, but of course I was expecting a gorilla. The curtain change was obvious as well, but I didn't notice the player leaving the game. I might not have noticed the player because I was so busy noticing that the gorilla's behavior was so similar to that from the original gorilla video and wondering why the cheesy chroma-keyd curtain was changing color.

Awesome! Very glad someone updated this! I'm going to use it with my psych. club tomorrow morning and I'll try to remember to post their reactions!

Awesome. Unlike Phil, I missed the curtain change AND the player leaving the game because of watching the gorilla. Effective demonstration of selective attention!
