Derren do

But what is Derren doing?

Details are scarce about Derren Brown’s upcoming C4 special, The Events, but this afternoon OTT has been sent three dimension-bending clips by way of trailers. So, let’s have a look.

The weirdness, it seems, is going on behind Derren.

Messing about with gravity, perhaps?

And whatever’s happening here is really subtle.

Although TV listings magazines for The Events‘ transmission week are currently being worked on, actual information about the show’s content is proving hard to find (C4 promises more will be forthcoming later in the week).

Nonetheless, the special has clearly been scheduled for September for some time. Back in June, Brown gave out enigmatic cards – stating: “DERREN BROWN THE EVENTS 09.09″ – at his theatre show, Enigma, in London. And surely the fact that the date inverted is 666 must be part of the strategy.

    Looking at the footage again, I’m wondering if all three were filmed backwards.

    Yes, quite clearly they’re backwards.

    yeah there’s been a lof of stuff on his blog lately backwards, and hidden messages etc relating to this:
    It’s a bit creepy, but I’m excited.

    Definitely backwards, in the first one, the dude in the background is walking really weirdly, probably backwards
