Thats just some of the hypnotic hype around one mind control man on ScifFi Channels new series Mind Control with Derren Brown, which premieres this Thursday (July 26).
Brown says his psychological showmanship may wow audiences, but his powers of suggestion come in handy during real life situations.
In one case, Brown ran into a distraught man who wanted to pick a fight with him, but the mental magician wasnt about to be walled in.
As he puts it, He had all his adrenaline rushing, so to counter it I told him, The wall outside my house is not four feet high. Then he got confused and started repeating, What?
Oddly enough, that brought down the wall between them.
Brown says the man got distracted and began telling him about the walls in Spain, which resulted in the man losing his desire to fight.
Says Brown, He ended up breaking down and crying. It was all because his girlfriend and him had been in a fight.
