    Top Gear Hammond hypnosis - Real or Fake?

    Just been watching top gear on good ol' Dave

    And the bit where hammond gets hypnotized came up, and ever since the first time I saw it.. Ive wondered if it was fake or not?

    This for those who dont know:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gjcwn7T-oMo

    The only thing that made me think it was fake was when Hammond woke up in the alfa he kind of smiled then covered his face? Trying not to laugh?

    Opinions?

    Mckenna is a known hypnotist. I wouldnt be surprised but im sure ethics would have had to have been considered..

    Well aren't you a killjoy

    All great things on TV are scripted, you really think that they can make that sort of programme from just ad-libbing?

    People like you who moan about it being staged really get on my nerves

    Weren't aimed at you. But yh i have to, a lot of its on their own accord. Jeremy Kyle just is in general a really funny bloke, you cant script his humour tbh..

    Cant say I have, but I never said they read every line from a script, just its all staged.

    When their cars blow over, break down, how close the races aginst trains etc are, its all done for entertainment. Not saying I dont like it, I do, but OP asked for our opinions if it was fake, and thats what I gave.

    Lot of people stuck up people on this site these days.

    Top Gear being staged doesn't bother me much anymore, it used to a lot until I realised I wasn't annoyed at it being staged I was annoyed a people thinking it was 100% real.

    "OMG did you see when the Stig drove off the aircraft carrier and died"

    "That was class when they swapped the Stig for James May in the England Vs Germany race, the German's didn't have a clue lolololololololololololololol"

    The thing that annoys me are the races. They're staged cos of the camera set ups etc, so they can get shots. If it was all like bull run or gumball or something the races would be better

    definitely fake, and he does keep a straight face well.

    for example when he's in the Alfa, he looks at the keys several times but avoids touching them, coincidence? i think not




    however, topgear is still good

    Coincidence?

    If you REALLY didn't know how to start a car, you wouldn't know what the keys did would ya?
