Still Raising Awareness About Your Oldness

Yesterday I updated you on some Chenglish terms you should know if you're planning on IMing a teenager. You could say I exposed your oldness, but that would be mean. Let's just say I highlighted your social networking laissez-faire-ness.

Today, I'm exposing your dying brain cells by testing your awareness acuity. But that sounds so mean. Let's just say I'm exercising your mental dexterity, or, researching your ability stay upright and alert. Please watch the video and report, honestly, your results. This is not a trick.

Melanie @ This Ain't New York said...

So now I'm old, can't stay upright and I still can't do the moonwalk.

Sheesh. Pass me my pills, Sonny.

Ms. Trish said...

nice.

Becky said...

Oh my word!!! that is so weird. Um, now my only question is... how many passes does the team in black make?

Ballerina Girl said...

In all honesty, I got the 13 passes and I did notice the big black blob enter the screen, but I had no idea it was a bear nor that said bear was moonwalking!
Tricky tricky!

Y'know, I really, really hate to admit this...but I have seen this before. I watched it anyway... and I still missed the bear!

In my defense, I just woke up about 30 minutes ago and am only on cup of coffee #1.

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

Missed the bear completely!!!! but then I wait for red lights at four way stops....

I'm not at all deterred! (is arrogance an old age phenomenon too?)

Tabi said...

Thanks so much. Appreciate you. only 25 and feel 80. Your AWESOME!! lol....never saw the bear....cracks me up!

Greg C said...

I saw this before so I knew to look for the bear. There were also some other ones that went along with this one but I can't seem to find them at the moment. They were just as interesting.

Dena said...

Ok, I got the number of passes right, but missed the bear. I even started it over just so I could make sure there really WAS a bear. However, I'm not blaming it on the fact that I'm getting old, I'm blaming it on the fact it's been a long week, it's almost Friday and I'm very ready for the weekend.

I received this in an email before, so I did not watch again, but I am oh so proud to report, in all this clutter of a mind and life, I did see ape!! whoot whooot!

Smiles!

Mocha with Linda said...

Gee, yesterday you kill us with the IMing, Kelly Love Well smirks that her virtual age is half her real age (I won't mention what mine was), and now this. I got the passes. Missed the bear.

And before I started the video I was really puzzled because I thought it said Moonwalking BEER Advert.

I think I need to go back to bed.

Rachel said...

I did get the 13 passes but totally DID NOT see the bear!

This is something my youth kids would pull on me to make me look stupid. :)

Susanne said...

I got the number right but missed the bear. Sheesh you would think we would have clued in by the title of the darn video! I'm not old, I just need to eat more Omega-3. Or something.

Alexia said...

My momma sent this to me awhile ago and it only took me 3 views to finally catch on to the huge ape and what the heck he was doing LOL

Amy said...

Not only did I miss the bear I had to watch it again thinking they tricked me and there was no bear the first time...geez...

now, just how is it i completely missed that bear...got the 13 right, but sure didn't notice the bear. that's scary...i'm glad it wasn't a live snake or a car coming through an intersection!
Robin will be ok though, cause she'll being waiting for the stop sign to turn green... lol :) she knows i love her!

Chatty Kelly said...

When he said "13" I was like "oh yeah, I'm aware!!" then he mentioned the bear. Whaaa??? I watched it from the beginning again to make sure it was there. duh. HYSTERICAL!

Joanna said...

Doh! Missed the bear. Hand me my cane.

Darlene R. said...

Yep, missed the bear! I got 13 though. Good Grief!

Laurie Ann said...

Got the passes right, missed the bear, too. ARGH! How did I not notice? KWIM? LOL!

My ADHD Me said...

I'm like Kelly. I was so impressed with myself when I got the number right.
Had no clue there was a bear! lol

Mel said...

AHHHHHHHHHH I missed the bear, i am a failure on observational skills....

Colored With Memories said...

got the 13...too focused on that to see the dern bear!

PJ said...

I have no clue!!! I'm really old. AND just read the IM thing and had to laugh. Kids are so funny. And as for movies....the medieval ones are more than I can take. I've left a few movies too. But I so wanted to see slum Dog Millionaire. Now I'm thinking I can't handle seeing it!! i didn't know there was anyone in the universe still who wasn't allowed to see movies. i saw my first after I was thirty!!! (In the theater that is. I sneaked in a few TV shows before that!)

Tammy said...

Did that say I was supposed to count something?!

Carmen Gamble said...

I had to watch it twice, then my son pointed it out. Enough said.

Heather of the EO said...

What does it mean if I've seen this before and still didn't see the bear? Ugh...

Edie said...

I'm with Ballerina Girl. I was annoyed with that big black blob that was in my way while I was trying to count passes. Ok truth, the first time it got in my way I started the video over because it made me lose count. Oh well.

DH pointed out that the "point" at the end (It's easy to miss something you aren't looking for) is a great Gospel tool! :-)

I missed the bear too. I even watched it a second time thinking that the thing wasn't in the first one. Duh.
