Basketball Awareness Test

The original awareness test featuring two teams of basketball players with the voice over asking you to count the number of passes made. What most people don’t notice because they are carefully counting the passes is the moonwalking bear that moves through the scene.

The voiceover then asks if you spotted the moonwalking bear and replays the clip. It is to highlight how your attention can be distracted and is part of a TFL (Transport for London) viral campaign for cyclist awareness by motorists.

Most people feel really pleased that they got the answer 13 for the number of passes and then slightly bemused by the moonwalking bear reference. Most require a couple of views just to make sure they are not going mad!
