Just watched this today as i pre recorded it. Was it all a big con?
I can't believe, even if it was Derren Brown and there was a camera crew that told you it was safe, you would let him put you in a straight jacket and tie you to a railway track then a train comes by and he won't help you get out, the guy didn't even squirm! I'd be yelling at him and squirming alot. He didn't flinch. And how can you make decisions and listen to what Derren brown is saying and answer one of his questions with your subconcious mind? And finally, if i just thought i'd landed a plane, came out to realise it wasn't actually a plane and i would ask alot of questions and be very confused, but this guy just seemed to accept it that he was a hero and this was all set up. i would be like whaaaat?!?!
What do you think?

To quote the film fight club after they almost shoot a guy out the back of a shop to show him what a gift life has to offer him
"Tomorrow will be the most beautiful day of Raymond K. Hessell's life. His breakfast will taste better than any meal he has ever eaten." .

The point is that the wake up call of the stunt Derren pulled on te man in the petrol station was for him to re-evalute his life and how short / precious / not going anywhere was to him. The other little stunts were just gimmicks.
