Have you ever gone on a long road trip you’ve made dozens of times in the past and at some point, during that drive, you zone out. An hour later, you come back to, and you’re 100 miles up the freeway with no memory of the last 99 miles? It’s not that you stopped paying attention to the road, and it’s not that you closed your eyes or lost consciousness. Your mind just went on auto-pilot. There’s a name for this phenomena, but for the life of me, I can’t recall what it’s called. So, I’m just going to call it, Watching the new Trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean 4.
I hit play. I saw Johnny Depp. And then I zoned out until the evil mermaid popped across the screen, and then I zoned out again. The next thing I knew, the trailer was over.
