On 5th October at 9pm, Derren Brown will attempt not to shoot himself in the head live on Channel 4.
Filmed in a secret location, one person selected from the thousands who applied will load a real handgun with one bullet and then hand it to Derren. Using a series of psychological tests, Derren will then determine which chamber contains the bullet, put the gun to his head, and fire until he comes to the live chamber.
A headline-grabbing stunt from a fascinating genre-defying mentalist/illusionist/hypnotist/magician. The clip of him using mass hypnosis on shoppers in a mall is not to be missed.
Update: So he didn't kill himself; but he was by no means certain of the outcome.Posted by ashleyniblock at October 04, 2003 06:28 PM
