What Color Is My Hoodie?

Objavljeno 12. apr. 2021
Grey? Blue? Purple? It can look different, depending on the context. Let's talk about color perception, color temperature, and the history of laundry.

  • Please contain all your "color" vs "colour" comments in this thread. Good luck.

  • Light blue

  • I like how all of this started from the simple question, "What color is my hoodie"

  • Purple

  • hmm, yes yes... I'll pretend to see the difference with my colorblind eyes :D

  • Me who’s wears glasses that blocks out certain colors

  • Thats why in TV studios the cameras get calibrated with the help of a "benchmark" grey card and a oscilloscope to precisly read out the values.

  • green

  • Oh gosh that glitching between "color temperature" and "colour temperature" set off my fight-or-flight response 😅

  • Light blue

  • Was anyone else expecting something about that dress mystery where people saw it as blue or gold?

  • Why does this remind me of that one CptD video?

  • Funny cuz I use color temperature in my art, I use bluish or cool colors for usually dark shaded areas while I use yellowish or warm colors for light areas

  • test

  • 0:45 “We need to talk about how color perception works And also about the *history of laundry.”* Me, audibly: “OHHHH GOSH”

  • I'm getting the blue or gold dress vibes

  • 2:54 Seems as though there was an After Effects war XD. Kidding, got a good chuckle out of that though

  • Your slowly turning into Vsause Lmao

  • Tom makes the type of videos that nobody asked for but everybody needed

  • Nice video and Hoodie gang boi :)

  • Since the reply feature isn't working right now, I'll post a reply to Tom's post this way: you may think, it's a pointless debate, as regional spellings are fine when they can be understood no matter which one you use, but i'd argue it's not pointless, because it is a harmless, enjoyable activity for linguistic prescriptivists, and that is an inherently good thing (providing happiness to people) In conclusion, Heck you if you say Color, it's Colour!!!

  • well by the thumbnail alone, id say your hoodie is thinking with portals.

  • the only reason i type color instead if colour is because u.. im lazy af and cba to type u

  • According to the thumbnail, your hoodie is 'Reverse-French-Flag' colored

  • How old are you

  • 2:57 was that to appeal to both brits and Americans

  • Tom: "what color is my hoodie?" Hoodie company: gray Us: gray Camera: orange The same camera: blue Calibrated color sensor: purple

  • I think I saw something about this on a tv show a few years ago, It showed two colors separated from each other, but when they were put together, they were actually shown to be the same exact color

  • 0:51: Me still at school:

  • ok so i’m not crazy the lights due change at night

  • Redn't

  • Barely anyone though noticed that Tom spoke in the same voice while the train was passing instead of stopping or voicing it in editing.

  • From red shirt to grey hoodie

  • Grey

  • White

  • Red

  • It looks like grayish White

  • Going by those trains, you're not in the countryside at all, you're near Wimbledon in London

  • Loved the colour/ clor flicker! Brilliant!

  • Colo(u)r temperature

  • Gray

  • I can't say color in the pinned comment, s u s

  • Light blue

  • I want that calibrated color sensor

  • "if im filming under a blank, grey sky, it can make the shot a bit dull" well its a good thing you dont live in the uk

  • why train

  • So, according to that colour sensor... your hoodie isn't gray. Or at least not exclusively. According to the manifacturer of the paint that was referenced by the sensor's software, your hoodie is... "[a] deep purple [that] has a generous gray undertone suggestive of storm clouds on a distant horizon."

  • I think li and ul are block element as ti takes all the width and prints in each rows

  • Friendly reminder: Brown does not exist.

  • Red, it’s always red

  • I saw you in Regent's Park yesterday wearing this very hoodie! Love your videos

  • The part about looking dirty is probably why Lego discontinued their original grey colors and replaced them with bluish-grey.

  • Rip colour blind ppl including me

  • The title isn't misleading will watch again

  • and another factor... I have f.lux on as well as blue light filtering glasses. "amethyst sky" looks brown.

  • i love watching toms videos in noiay environments because all his videos has subtitles

  • 0:50 bold of u to assume i learnt anything from school

  • Thanks for using the right color/colour in the title

  • The video edit and Tom's performance in this video is flawless!

    • Imagine staring out of your window on a train journey and seeing Tom just chilling with his cameraman on a hill with a grey hoodie.

  • Looks grey to me somethimes when i blink it goes to very very very very very very very very 0.0000000000000000000000001 blue

  • Tom, you’re the only person who can make “The History of Laundry” interesting. Bravo 👏

  • When you changed the lighting at 3:00 it turned pink, not yellow. Also, I would like a color calibrator like that. What is it called and how much are they? Google is being unhelpful.

    • @NT_23 I'll accept peach.

    • It's more of a peach colour. Definitely not pink

  • Forgot i had my blue light filter on.. 2:39 you have no idea tom

  • What I take from this video is that blue is scientifically the best color

  • This reminds me of an ongoing argument my uncle and I had over whether the house across the street from where we used to live was blue or gray. It was light blue. Every time I go back there, it's still the color I remember it. I don't care what my uncle says; it was blue.

  • Stop right there Mr Tom, the garment you're wearing is comfortable so there's no need to ask for others opinions regarding it. You do you. 😃

  • Christ you look like Tony Blair

  • Grey. Now bye
