    Did any of you see Derren Brown's lotto-predicting stunt tonight? I've watched it a few times over for any trace of camera trickery or anything but I admit, I'm baffled :confused:

    A few people I've spoken to think he may have used split screen techniques or that the balls had little LCD screens on them so that the numbers could be typed onto as they were announced (considering he didn't reveal them til AFTER the draw)....but I dunno, on Friday he says he'll show us how we can do it at home, so I think that rules out split screens and LCD monitors.....knowing Derren Brown this will be something very clever but simple.....I'm intrigued....what do you guys think?

    For those who missed it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHZ2mQczkcg (Maybe you can try and spot something I've missed....also, Derren usually has little hints and clues scattered about that he reveals later, so keep your eyes peeled)

    I think that they're also showing a few other bits on misdirection - I saw the advert and made a mental note to watch it, as it looks to be interesting stuff...

    In the advert, you saw him saying something to a passer by in anther language, then stepping out in front of a lorry and it stopping - all scripted, no doubt - but it sure does make the programme look like it's going to be an interesting one :)

    It's not another language, it's what he's saying backwards, if you see the other advert its the same thing but played foward, so he's talking normal and he's actions are the other way round, if that makes sense.

    It doesn't look good tho.

    Well, duh, it's trickery, but I doubt it's a cheap camera trick.

    an expensive camera trick? Slight of hand,illusion..props tampered with..point is..what IS the point of it?I just find these things boring because I know its trickery of some kind and I have never been impressed with magic tricks or illusionists.
    I'm a wet blanket ,lol.:tongue:

    I very much doubt that he'd place his reputation on the line, for a 'camera trick'. All'll be revealed later tonight though.

    So who watched the show last night? Did anyone else feel a bit fobbed off?

    Next week's looks..........intriguing....:huh:

    Yeah I did a bit, but then again, it is impossible, even for him, to predict the lottery, which I guess was his point.

    As you say, next week's certainly does look very interesting.. I'm looking forward to it.

    Cant be bothered to check to see if someone has corrected you, but its not another language its just backwards, if you look on youtube theres two different adverts, the one where he walks backwards and talks forwards, and one where he walks forwards and talks backwards, the bloke on the bike tells hiom to move his arse


    So i did look, vikki beat me to it, never mind eh?
