"Get your cogs rolling" "imagine you are in preschool" subliminally hinting for a person to think of bicycle, I think deren has alot of these sumblims memorized in his head and picks one according to a person's personality, that's why he asked him what he studies. Respect to brown, a GENIUS!

"Slightly smaller American brain". Derren knows just what words to use to win those Americans over and break into the big time... And then she says "there's no other explanation for it". That's how people get duped into becoming religious fundamentalists.

1:14 Twin towers?! When was this filmed?
Crowd3R (11 months ago)
Those are not the twin towers. That building behind them is the "Time Warner Center" at Columbus Circle, on the South West / West corner of Central Park.

Those look nothing like the World Trade Centre, that's just two towers. Also, this show aired from 2007-2008.

this is hilarious because he clearly puts the suggestion of 3 and going round and round in your mind. The American still says bicycle. hahahaha
Marty Procter (5 months ago)
he even says 'elementary school' which if you break it down into sylables it ends with "Elemen - tary school" so close to 'tricycle'
KeepItSimpleStupid (1 year ago)
So Derren tried to plant "tricycle" in the guy's mind by talking about the "three cogs" that'd be "going round" in his mind. I'm getting wise to this stuff!

luuke luketer Christ knows??!! It sounds American with a bizarre Japanese twang to it? She’s quite creepy if you ask me. As far as I’m concerned, if I was walking down alley way, I’d be scared!
I think it's because of how he said psychology like cycle or something

"3 cogs round in your mind"-what dose that sound like? Derren's mistake was he said "imagine you are 6 years old" when tricycles are really for toddlers who can't balance much. Most 6 year olds would have stabilisers on their bicycle but it still be a bicycle ie 2 wheels. Bi=2 not tricycle 3 wheels tri=3!
Francis Legaspi (3 years ago)
There is something Fishy about this. Don't get me wrong I like Derren Brown, but how the hell did he knew the girl's name(Jessica) even though the girl didn't tell it. He mentioned it around 2:26 - 2:27 of the the clip. I hope I am wrong I haven't seen the Whole Video of this, well I just noticed it :)
Francis Legaspi the video is cut. He would have learned her name off camera
Dire Crux (3 years ago)
Its funny, the first time hearing the word psychological illusionist there was a massive pause just before and an emphasis of CYCLE-logical that made me think of a bike, doing 3 different things, followed by 3 cogs going round (Attempting to implant 3 wheels, guy must've missed that part/wasn't paying full attention or was only susceptible to going round), followed by pretend your 6 (child, multiple of 3), start wri-ding a word and bam.

w0bbl3r (3 years ago)
I like how they always say "he's psychic, he must be". When he clearly admits it's a trick, nothing to do with any magical powers or other hocus pocus nonsense. When he did that girl from hollyoaks, Claire something her name was, and he had that stupid scouse "psychic" there, he was so spot on with everything, and the only thing the supposed psychic got right was she came in a mini cooper. But he didn't say that he had spotted her driving in, and when confronted he said he didn't see her at all, even though they had him on camera saying hello to her as she got out of the car. Then, when the "reading" was done, Derren had told her he was using cold reading, while the other guy was allegedly psychic, she just said "Derren is spooky, he is psychic he just won't admit it. No other way he could know those things, he is psychic". People are gullible, and most of all terrified of dying. So they believe this nonsense. And a good thing too, or we wouldn't have terrific shows like the one's Derren puts on. Saw his miracle show a few months ago in sheffield, and he was just incredible. Healing people like Peter Popof or whatever his name is, but admitting all the while that it was nothing more than trickery and the placebo affect.

"A *three* choice of word." (Not *free* choice.)
Interestingly enough, I think that psychic strenght does have an impact on the use of psychological forces like that. Since he has good charisma, assertiveness and self-confidence, he is psychicaly more efficient. That means that the psychological mecanical effects/triggers that he is going for, will have more chances of working because of the psychic aspect of it. Not even sure he's aware of that himself, or rather he would say it differently.
Keyshell I can watch for myself, but thanks for typing this out....
MultiJejje (1 year ago)
countsmuth, I think that was a very important start.

"Three cogs going around"
Niall Walsh (5 years ago)
when he says he's a psychological illusionist he puts emphasis on psychol/cycle, 3 things going on in your head over and over, or round and round, and without really having to think about it, just like riding a bike :)
James Jovanovski (4 years ago)
He also emphasizes "free" when he talks about the guys choices. It could be associated with the tricycle because of the three wheels. 
Fank234 (4 years ago)
Again, would be no guarantee.
Craig Hawkins (5 years ago)
He also used the phrase "cogs going round and round in your mind".
ZER0 (5 years ago)
He asked the guy on the fone 3 questions, then said hed have 3 cogs going on in his mind, and imaging being 6 y.o. (i thought he would have said 3 y.o.) is when youd more likely have a tricycle.  Im probably completely wrong but it might be part of it.

Lolp821 (6 years ago)
His stuff is all in the words he uses, subtle body language and predicting what someone would think. The problem with his show is he only shows the ones it worked on, you never get the illusion breaker of someone who isn't as suggestive.
SpiderFan23 (6 years ago)
It's very clever how he's able to use words in his sentences that sound innocent but are actually suggestive e.g. "I'm gonna ask you to do THREE things" "Three different COGS that are going ROUND & ROUND" "Imagine being a CHILD IN SCHOOL". He's really good!
Stator (6 years ago)
No, but you appear to be a fucking idiot :) No harm done ey?
Stator (7 years ago)
Are you a fucking idiot? Of course everyone has accents. I'm English and although I think everyone in my area talks the same, doesn't mean we don't have acnts, just because we are used to it. EVERYONE has an accent, even if you think you're accent is the right one that everyone should speak, it's not.

GVZ (7 years ago)
That's funny because you are calling a correct statement wrong based on your own opinion, which is not based on fact and is wrong in itself. Every person has an accent, whether you like it or not.
GVZ (7 years ago)
Well you need to open your eyes because I said IF you're American, not you ARE American.
GVZ (7 years ago)
Everyone in the world has an accent, its just a different accent. If you're American you have an American accent, if you're English you have an English accent. People saying "they don't have an accent" is absolutely wrong.
Codga2001 (7 years ago)

Michael Kriechbaum (7 years ago)
Man she's so cute. But Yeah I see what he did (the second time I saw it). He said the line "theirs 3 different, cogs moving round in your head" and also "imagine your 6 years old writeing on a chalk board." Basicly he implanted in his head the idea of 3, cogs and child as in kids ride bikes. Impressive though. Makes me think I should try it.
