Probably because most people haven't watched Psycho nor are there that many references to him people would easily stumble across.

Either way, my ignorance of who he is hast been excused by this imo.

It's because the movie psycho is famous and most of the time it's only to movie buffs really


That and really the big thing to come from psycho is the shower knife scene

It's famous in a way that it commonly is referenced by youtubers or top 5, 10, 50, 100 lists and what not whether it be Watch Mojo, some random youtuber OR actual magazines. He is also the second top villain in the American Film Institute's top 100 for villains.

And yes, the cheesy shower knife scene is also a source of jokes.

Really? What YouTubers do you watch? I haven't seen a single one I'm subscribed to ever reference Norman Bates by name -- and many of them are very popular. Aside from that I've never watched a list of the top references.

I also knew about the movie Psycho without knowing about Norman Bates too and clearly recognized it from a video (which I forgot) mentioning the movie briefly -- with no mentions of the famous character within it at all.

Just because I watch videos doesn't mean that I'm subscribed to them. I can't just list them off the top of my head. Also, I forgot you pay attention to things like KawaiiPiranha (whatever it's called) and AngryJoe >.>

Also, the references might be suddle

KawaiiPiranha is the fucking bomb. One of my favorite animators.

But yeah, my ignorance of his fictional existence is justifiable considering numbers. At the very least more people than me alone are guilty of not knowing about Norman Bates.

How do you know everyone who voted 'No' doesn't know him? I did, but voted no because I had no context of what the topic was about.

Next time you have a poll, you should make it clearer lol.

Oh, yeah. More insight, I chose No, because NOrman Bates. I dunno. It resonated with me more.

I also thought this was for a Norman Bates type character.

Wait, I'm trying to look for the question, and I can't see it.

I clearly put "Do you know who Norman Bates is?" but the question isn't there.

I guess your no cancels out with Scarlet's yes, so it doesn't matter? xD

But yeah, I was also confused as to what the topic was about. I assumed it was for a character as well >.>

Ha, I see what happened. The question is there, but it's in black font. So you can't see it unless you highlight it or something. It's directly above the poll.

WE CAN'T REDO THE POLL BECAUSE NOW PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT NORMAN BATES HAVE NOW OBTAINED KNOWLEDGE ABOUT HIM. IT'D RUIN THE PURPOSE OF THIS EXPERIMENT.
