Derren is a an exceptional mentalist, his shows on religion and faith are worth watching too. Also the one where he get's someone to shoot Stephen Fry, the man scares me to death but the suggestions he can put into peoples minds are amazing. He's a common face on UK TV.

I saw this when it was on TV.
Afterwards I read a newspaper article about how the guy was fresh out of acting school.
However Derren Brown claims he chose this guy because he was suggestible enough to be hypnotized. And he hit back at the "staged" rumours by making a youtube video with the guy afterwards to clear it all up.
Believe what you will...fake or real I watched this and it was great TV
I watched this when it aired a while back and enjoyed the first half but then all the papers labelled it a fake and all scripted and planned with the guy who was meant to be hypnotized was actually in on it all along. i then watched the second half but not as a cool trick on the mind but as a scripted and fake reality TV show like Jersey Shore and all the other shows that claim to be REALITY when they're not.
The only minds Derrin Brown is messing with are the minds of his gullible viewers.
The “actors” are obviously in on the pranks and are active participants.
If this video is in fact genuine I think this "test/prank/whatever" is cruel.
I know Derren Brown, he is fabulous, and so are his formal stage shows!
