Derren Brown is back and this time he's making us kill each other.
Well, not quite but his latest show has caused quite a stir for getting poor unsuspecting people into such a state that they willingly go along with a plot to push an old man off a roof.
Unsurprisingly, the reaction to 'Derren Brown: Pushed to the Edge' centres around whether or not the English mentalist is in fact some sort of demon sent to Earth to eventually destroy us all.
Imagine being friends with Derren Brown - you'll kick him out of the group chat and next thing you know you've woken up naked in Morocco— ade (@AdeOjigbo) January 12, 2016
It's fortunate that @DerrenBrown decided to use his powers for good (and good TV) rather than evil, or we'd all be fucked.— Shannon (@unseen4) January 13, 2016
One day Derren Brown will rule us all. We won't know why. Because he is a mind controlling wizard man who must be obeyed. #DerrenBrown— Amy Hetherington (@AmyEloiseH) January 13, 2016
But he does have friends, and they actually look quite happy to be there. Or is that what he's making them think...
Chris Robshaw and Ian McKellen in tonight. Just good to get the old gang back together. pic.twitter.com/1JWVEOxh2J— Derren Brown (@DerrenBrown) January 12, 2016
Anyway, back to the important issues... at hand.
I wonder how many people don't wank anymore for fear they're somehow being spied on by Derren Brown.— Summer Ray (@SummerRay) January 12, 2016
There was lots of speculation about his true identity.
Derren Brown is legit probs Jesus or st— Beth (@n0toriousBETH) January 13, 2016
Many were thinking if what they were thinking was actually what they were thinking and not what Brown was thinking we should think.
It's frightening to think that at any point in your life you could be part of a @DerrenBrown special and not know. Maybe I'm in one now?— Finn Dinneen (@FinnDinneen) January 13, 2016
What if @DerrenBrown is brainwashing me whilst I watch— felicity (@felicity__kate) January 13, 2016
And then there was this terrifying scenario.
If Donald Trump had Derren Brown's brain the world would be a terrifying place #DerrenBrown— Trish Taylor (@taylorednlp) January 13, 2016
But it's clear that in the event Brown did take over the world he wuld have a dedicated band of minions to do his evil bidding...
