    PLEASE!!! The Keystone ad is horrible!

    • Simon

      My hope is that they're paying per view of the ad, since I'd guess that a fair proportion are viewing it from places that have never heard of whatever it is, and whatever he's talking about.

      I could ad-block it, but I'd rather The Chive get money from them so they don't have to resort to even worse advertising tactics to break dollar one just yet.

    • Static

      oh.. and the video was dumb. especially since it wasnt a trick

    • PrimerGray

      You should of been here for the Deadspace ads. Ugh.

      • Stop using IE

        2012… get a damn ad blocker and you'd just see the video.

      • Crabcake

        The corona ads got old after awhile also.

    • Joslin

      And why does he tie his shoe twice?!

  • shamus

    Probably could have fixed the audio, it was pretty easy to tell that the tablecloth and curtain were being moved

  • poopoo


    thumbs me down…it turns me on

  • PrimerGray

    When was the gorilla going to walk through the background?..

    • Dick Salad

      I was waiting for it to do something…

  • oliver

    This is the dumbest thing ever. Like worse than a dog that eats its own poop.

  • Tugboat

    cant really be a trick if the cards go out of sight of the camera…. please remove this is not chive worthy

    • Steve Grenier

      You sir, missed the point.

      • LiT

        blabla curtain color changes THE CARDS WERE OUT OF SIGHT! you dont get it

        • Simon

          Nope, you don't get it I suspect.

          It wasn't about the trick at all, but about how pretty much everything you were looking at changed and you (possibly) didn't notice. And I'm guessing you didn't notice because you were wasting energy shouting at your monitor about the cards going out of shot.

          • MrSusan20

            got 'im.

  • Chive

    some more magic tricks look like real

  • Mike

    That was soo fake….The fact that he has a Jack facing up at the end of the deck before "Sarah" is conviently focused on and then it's a 7 when he swaps the deck why the cameras away….just horrible.

    • interneurons

      It's not a card trick, it is an example of change blindness. The cards were to throw you off. Seems like it worked too well.

  • @swiftenhaal

    I'm too hungover for this.

  • booradlye

    chive is better than this. This video sucked balls.

  • Derp


  • Bilbo Braggins

    I would think true Chivers would "get" this. Bravo!

    • videologic

      you really would think that? I wouldnt think that for a second

  • Yoseph

    Not afraid to admit that I missed all of them

  • Chubbs

    Someone explain how this isn't just a deck switch?

    • JHL1

      You guys really need to watch the entire video to see what actually happened.

      • JHL1

        Any btw…. of course it's a deck switch. But it certainly isn't "just" a deck switch.

    • TheSimonizer

      They both changed shirts, table cloth and drapes got changed too.

  • Richard

    What is the point of all this?

    • keagin

      The point was to see how observant the watch is.. You obviously are not observant at all!

    This is actually a political science lesson. Based on many of the comments here, the lesson was lost on some. Every time you see a politician throwing a hissy fit on TV about some little issue that will surely spell the end of the republic, look to see what is changing in the background.

    • MrSusan20

      haha, very nice.

  • cels0_o


  • LucretiusCarus

    Wow. Can't believe so many Chivers didn't get this. Yes, the card trick was obvious, but did you all catch the shirt and background changes? This is almost as good as the invisible gorilla. Essentially the same point is made: misdirection can cause you to miss a lot.

    • Joslin

      Speaking of, I was waiting for the guy in the gorilla suit to do something.

  • blue_bronco

    Is she wearing a Star Trek outfit?

  • Mattyd


  • Ed Koy

    This video is several years old.

  • TheSimonizer

    I just think it's very poorly executed. Right from the start you see the green shirt on the chair to her left.
    And you can see his previous shirt under the new one in the collar area. It had the potential to be, but nothing amazing here.

  • arcelia

    my mind has been just been blown

  • Navin R. Johnson

    what was the point of this? weak sauce!
