I typed duct tape, insulation tape, finally electrical tape!

I didn’t know the name of the tape but I thought to myself, this is what they use on electrical wires, so I tried Conductor Tape.

Pictured tape is Gaffer/Gaffa tape in UK.

Isn't that a whole different type of tape though? Electrical tape is all plastic, gaffa tape has cotton in it.

Gaffer's tape has a matte finish, since reflection of light is especially undesirable on tv/movie sets. It's also meant to be easily removable without damaging the surface or leaving residue.

How about duct tape? I reckon it's difficult to distinguish between the different sorts from the photo.

I thought I was supposed to name the type of clothes that Johnny Cash was wearing.

Level 67

Yeah, the clue makes absolutely no sense.
+1
Level 80
Dec 6, 2018
it says "this singer"
+3
Level 70
Dec 6, 2018
I thought the same. I had put the emphasis in the clue on "the clothes" and not "this singer."
+4
Level 74
Dec 6, 2018
Me too. Something like "This singer who wore black" would do it.
+1
Level 80
Feb 22, 2020
the clothes are black. The singer isn't black. The clue is asking for the identity of the singer.
+1
Level 67
Feb 22, 2020
It says the clothes of this singer. If the clue was "the hat of this man" in a quiz about things starting with p, for a picture of a man wearing a panama hat. You would not think it was about the man would you?

I got it eventually but skipped it initially. Thinking I dont know names for a clothesstyle

I agree, with the clue regarding Johnny Cash. It was hard to understand what it was referring to.
+1
Level 81
Dec 6, 2018
The clue says "this singer." That means you're supposed to name the singer. The Man in Black!

Red Back Spider!
+1
Level 70
Dec 6, 2018
Very similar, the red marking on this spider has the 'Martini Glass' look that is the USA Black Widow, the Australia Red Back Spider has a similar but distinctive mark usually a longer stripe.
+1
Level 53
Dec 6, 2018
Also, the red back's mark is on its back, which is not the visible part of the spider in this picture anyway...

I agree with the comments on Johnny Cash, didn't really understand what you were looking for.

Never seen a magic 8 ball before only on "Friends", I thought it was to help you make a decision.

Electrical tape is not usually black, is it? It comes in all colours. Gaffer tape is almost always black, wouldn't that be a better clue?
+1
Level 43
Dec 6, 2018
Yes, electrical tape is lots of colours. I'd even argue that its mostly other colours, not black. I think the Quizmaster should find another black thing less ambiguous.
+1

The problem with gaffer tape is that I don't think it's very well-known in the US. I could be wrong, but I only learned what it meant because I started working at a theatre.

That isn't usually a problem when clues aren't well known outside of the US

Black doesn't come in "shades"! It only has one "shade", the hexadecimal colour 000000. Otherwise it's just dark gray, dark red, dark blue, dark whatever, you get the drift. The only other colour this is true for, by the way, is white.
