Derren does it forwards

C4 has released a further trail for Derren Brown: The Events… and this time it’s forwards.

Details of The Events, which – despite press pointing towards Friday 11 September as the kick-off day, actually debuts with a short live broadcast on C4 on Wednesday 9 September – are still being kept under wraps. But before we speculate further, here’s that trailer…

So what do we know? The first episode, is the most intriguing; Brown stating “if it got out beforehand, we’d probably be stopped from doing it.” However, National Lottery-related iconography – and numbers – in the trail are hinting at some sort of Lotta-related stunt. Perhaps Derren’s hoping to get us all to bet on the same numbers.

Event #2 is shaping up to be a variant of a trick performed at his recent stage show, Enigma, where members of the audience were compelled to rise to their feet. Except, this time, he claims he’ll be causing viewers at home to become stuck to their sofa.

The third Event is provisionally titled ‘How to Fool the CIA’, and is Brown’s take on the phenomenon of ‘remote viewing’, while the fourth… well, nothing’s been forthcoming on that.

“In the modern world of mass communication and big business,” says Brown, “simple tricks can be developed to make even the most secure of systems vulnerable when you know where to push.”
