Assumptions by Richard WisemanAssumptions by Richard WisemanRichard Wiseman’s viral clip Assumptions has been viewed more than 3 million times on YouTube, which immediately propelled him into #celebrity status. As a result of this success, Richard has been invited to create online content for various projects, including Derren Brown’s The Events, the launch of The Mentalist, and Transport For London’s campaign to promote road safety. As can be seen from this clip, Assumptions explore the power of perspective using a well known Ames Room effect.

    It’s incredible how the human mind pulls tricks on itself. Making assumptions is actually built into our hardware. Interesting illusion.
