The reason why you don't notice the gorilla is because it is the color black. You are told to only focus on the people wearing white shirts and
ignore those wearing black shirts. If the gorilla was any other color, you would notice it, but since the gorilla is the specific color you are told
to ignore, your mind ignores it while you are focusing on the count. Although your consciousness does recognize the gorilla is there, your mind finds
the information to be useless to the activity and discards it.
Whether this actually means anything is up for debate, but that should tell you why the YouTube comments have been disabled.
