Watch this video 3 times, that should be enough to solve this 'video puzzle' by Michael Karas.

Damn, it took my five times.
By the way. I am a robot, but smart enough to fool the captcha :)

I don' t get it. Maybe it' s because English is not my language.

PK said...

Thanks for posting this -- a very unusual "puzzle" that I enjoyed!

@Anon: If English is your second language, you probably don't realize that "KNOWS" and "NOSE" are so similar that the two words can almost be interchanged. (Hope this helps.)

I believe it was Isaac Asimov who called puns that only work in speech, but not in writing, "Type 2" puns (as opposed to Type 1 puns, which have only one spelling for both words, and therefore work in speech and in writing).

Our household disallows Type 2 puns. They are too easy.

Haha, I did it! I thought I could finish the puzzle in less than 3 viewings, but it turns out that's impossible..

SPOILERS SPOILERS

I SAID SPOILERS TURN BACK

i looked for key words and noticed what he was doing so deliberately during the first watch. i figured out the word that made the most sense with what he was doing. i was left with four guesses but it turned out the correct one came first. it turned out to be a bit of a hunt as i didn't know where to click.

but yeah i made it with two watches.

@PK The problem was that I was counting every four words, not only the fourth of each card, so what appeared made no sense.

It's not like English is my second language, I've only studied it in school (and now in high school), but I think I would have get that pun.

Hi, I also went for every four words, not only the fourth of each card.

Wow apparently I'm not very good at counting....

**SPOILERS**
I can see why most people got it in 3 tries but for me it only took two! As soon as I saw "my", I knew to click on his face.

Nice. Very nice.

Jade Green said...

That was great! It did take me three viewings to figure it out, well worth it!

Very nice Bart, tx for sharing. I had to see it 4 times, but as a french user I'm not ashamed (the knows/nose trick got me !). This guy is amazing and your post let me discover him and all his other videos. Earrings is so nice too, and Jugglings either.

Why is is spelling nose wrong considered a trick?

Anonymous said...

It's a trick involving words that sound the same but mean different things. For people who don't have english as their first language it is tricky.

Jesus, I wouldn't have gotten the answer if it weren't for these comments. I got it on my 5th try. ~Gladiator

This is one of those smack-myself-in-the-face-because-DUH puzzles. I got stuck for a while because I was trying to count every fourth word, not the fourth word of each card.
