Tonight I watched a man play russian roulette.

Derren Brown: aimed to pull the trigger five times with a gun at his head, the sixth shot (where the bullet was) away from him. In the end he got 4 out of 5 attempts correct. He seemed to believe the gun was in the chamber that was fired third. He aimed this bullet away, as was the plan for the chamber with the bullet in. End result: click. No bullet fired.

The guy shook. This was not planned, I'd bet. He looked on for a few minutes, trying to get his composure back. He put the gun to his head one last time, to find nothing, before firing the bullet away from him, correctly this time.

Not your usual Sunday evening television, I guess.

This stunt has obviously caught people's imagination: his website, derrenbrown.co.uk, is ironically dead from too many people trying to access it, I bet.
