← AC Grayling: Derren Brown's Lotto stunt was a trick too far

HenryFord's Avatar Jump to comment 2 by HenryFord

I was sat at a friends house watching this on Friday (I missed Wednesday's episode, so I missed the actual trick) and I admit to being a bit bemused by the show. Derren has always declared he has no supernatural powers and that all that stuff is nonsense - so why did he spend Friday's show trying to convince us he pulled the trick using supernatural abbilities? I didn't get it.

What was more worrying was my friend and his partner both buying into the ludicrous explanation given of taking average numbers. Maybe that is what the trick realy is - Derren trying to see how many people buy into the supernatural bollocks explanation.
