Hi there.

On one of the Derren Brown DVDs, he tells 3 models at a fashion show some stuff.
He tells two of them what quality in a partner they most look for and then the third he asks her to think about a specifid chat up line that she has been given in her life. Derren then goes on to tell her the chat up line.

Now I have lots and lots of information on Metalism, and magic but how the h£ll did he do that??
He mentions that he never uses stoodges but this is unbelievable.

Anyone know where to learn how to do this?

Either that or he is for real.

I have asked him personally, but he didn't tell me.

Without sounding unhelpful, if you have 'a lot of information on mentalism' you will already know a few ways this can be done.

Derren Brown to date has puiblished very little about his current effects he does, so you will not find this exact effect anyway yet. As as this is an effect he currentl;y is performing, I am not sure it would be right to outright expose this method, but belive me if you knwo about mentalism you will know how to do this effect

regards

I do look forward to the day when you post something constructive.

He's a brilliant and careful listener, as are the members of his staff and crew.

Thankfully, Derren keeps his secrets just that, secret. So no one can know for sure how he does his stuff. But I did hear somewhere that the models were actually Andy Nyman and Co. in drag.

Thank you! Images from the Get Nyman DVD just came flooding into my mind. I may not be able to sleep tonight.

You seem to have a deep knowledge about Metalism but this forum is about Mentalism - I in the same way know everything about SAX...

PS: The next question you may ask could be to rename this excellent forum to "MaficFreeLunch", magicians exposing magicians...

Don't take any offense, simply put I beleive your post doesn't belong in this forum

Ah yes, a nice routine. If you've got the 'power', why not do this, is what I say! (and while you're at it, why not go round touching strippers invisibly).

But Boydy, this is not the sort of forum for 'how the hell did he do that'. Just to let you know, as said above.

A decent knowledge and understanding of the art of Mentalism will reveal multiple methods of how this effect can be accomplished.

Search the Café for lists of books that cover the basics of Mentalism and I am sure you will find within the pages of those books the answers that you are looking for.

I hate to break it do you, but Derren actually dated all of those woman, and the last one...well that was the actual chat up line he used on her. So no real mind control there...he is how you say a 'PLAYAA' (Excuse my Ghetto, its a little rusty).

And the methods both are almost the same Smile)))

I really enjoy reading this thread. But seriously, if you really have some knowledge of mentalism and you think a little about it then you should have a clue, for reason you really want to know instead of just watching and enjoying his shows Smile

That's the beauty of TV-Technique and Derren is a master in using these techniques to his advantage.

Here's the thing, I do not know how he did his effects, but I do know how I can do them.
Just think of way of doing the same effect and try it. As the greats say, start with the Effect then work out the method you can use for doing it.

I just watched the DVD and liked it a lot. he's such a strong personality and unlike Criss Angel, as a lay person I could belive that everything is for real. As for the effect: Someone said earlier: He and his crew are good listeners. Said enough...

Probability. I mean what are you gonna say... "No no I like ex convicts and druggies, unkempt and living in there parents basement"? I doubt it, So you could easily write a statement that will force them to say yes... Then you ask them to think of a love, match, website or hotline. Now I don't know about the UK. But EVERYONE in the U.S is gonna say "match dot com"... Vwalah, instant miracle. I wish I had though tof it...

Lol - the top performer in the Uk uses pure luck, yeh sure, ive seen his stage show a couple of times and had the pleasure of talking to him, he was very nice and happy to talk about things.

He DOES NOT use pure luck.
