Derren Brown - The Event

Alright, who got stuck to their chair then? Clearly the power of Derren Brown was nowhere near as powerful as the lure of Twinnings tea. I got up immediately to put the kettle on

All it was as far as I could see was one subliminal picture and then some white swirly stuff. I remain firmly unstuck.

Re: Derren Brown - The Event

i watched it on channel 4+1 also, and the subliminal pic was a drawing of a man sat on a chair by the looks of it.

Fred took this pic with his camera phone....

Now, call me cynical, but it was some floaty lines with a soundtrack that sounded a bit like something off my Ibiza chillout album....

Re: Derren Brown - The Event

Fred did well to catch that image!

Well that's 8 of us now that felt nothing. Assuming we are a random sample, the probability of that happening, based on Derren's claim of 20% success is 17%. So there's an 83% chance that he's talking utter twaddle.

Re: Derren Brown - The Event

It appeared that before the short film came on, I was sat up close to my TV and began to feel a weird feeling in my body but when the actualy 1 min clip came on I felt nothing.

Well Dan, that now makes an 87% chance that it was utter twaddle.

Was a bit worried that he was still on the sofa this morning but he said that he'd just fallen asleep stilling up with his eyes open, creapy!

Re: Derren Brown - The Event

I'm a natural cynic, and I didn't get stuck to the chair, but I did feel a bit heavy after.

Perhaps it was just relaxation therapy.

I couldn't help thinking there was a feint image behind the swirling lines. Imagine that the white is opaque, and the grey slightly transparent and there's something behind. Freeze-framing doesn't help, as you need the movement to see what's behind. If I get some free time I might try some image processing on multiple frames to see if there's anything there.

I thought the subliminal was too obvious, and was probably there to throw you. It was only one frame long, but was white while the studio was dark. If you wanted it to be subliminal it would be a similar shade, not like a camera flash.
