Taste the difference between lime and lemon?

In light of the pending lime apocalypse, I watched this short, funny video to learn the answer (tho' I had my suspicions..)
That's a lot of wrong answers (7 out of 20 for those who don't want to sit through the ads before the actual vid starts). Did the people who got it wrong have colds? Admittedly I've never tried a blind test, but I find the flavor, aroma and even acidity level so markedly different I can't imagine confusing them...
I'm surprised 7 out of 27 got it wrong. Maybe I use more citrus than most, but they have very different flavors and specific uses.
May the Michoacán thugs be apprehended and stop extorting Mexican growers. And the weather improve.
I'm not surprised.
Having lived in parts of the world where limes were only available seasonally - in regards to cooking, lemons typically provide a more than satisfactory sub. I'd say that unless trying really hard to tell the difference, the primary flavor difference is in the zest and not the juice.
