Your chance to settle an internet argument

First, watch this video:

Then answer the following question.

Spoiler: Did you see the goat?

I didn't the first time, and I'm convinced I can't be the only one.

Starkizzer says it's easy to spot, but she cheated because she knew in advance.
I wake up in the morning more tired than before I slept
I get through cryin' and I'm sadder than before I wept
I get through thinkin' now, and the thoughts have left my head
I get through speakin' and I can't remember, not a word that I said

Missed it, not all the surprising because it is kind of hidden, if only by the flow in the video.

Yeah, I noticed it. At first I was thinking, "Heh, that dog handler is losing-hey wait, that's not a dog!"

Ahh, the "Invisible Gorilla" illusion. You'd definitely not the only who didn't see it. Statistically, anyone who *does* seem it is way outside the norm.

This guy was on Colbert or something recently and I checked out his book. It looks really good, but I'm also persistently interested in the flaws in our brain. This is definitely one of them.

I didn't see the goat the first time I watched the video, but did the second time after you mentioned it, yes.

Ahh, when prompted for the answer I found it. I never even paid attention the first time.
