Derren Brown is a very clever man. Albeit a little bit weird. If you’ve been watching Channel4 recently you’ll have probably seen his “backwards advert”. He plays on the power of suggestion, and it’s pretty powerful… anyone remember ‘the Heist’ where he ‘persuaded‘ a normal person to commit an armed robbery?!
So this is the advert. It’s advertising a new show/experiment he’s doing called ‘The Events’. Anyway, everything is going backwards, which makes the things going forward stick out in your mind… I wanted to buy a lottery ticket after! Subliminal messages are clearly pretty powerful!
