    he does look at it, but he doesn't "see it", he just goes through the motion, while being pre-occupied with keeping the customer happy.

    I've seen similar brainwashing being done at a dog race place, my friend can convince the lady that his ticket is a winner even when it is a losing one. 3/4 times it worked.

    It was a long time ago, but you can do it! Even if there is a big red light flashing "no", she will "see" yes, if you are good enough

    I can understand how you could easily distract someone by talking to them and getting them to think about other things when you hand them the money (paper).

    Maybe even blank paper could REALLY REALLY work! It would be very easy to do with paper that looks just a little bit like the real thing, quite easy.

    But in the case of the jewelery store, when he hands the guy a whole lot of cash, $4500 worth! and the shop owner didnt even think to COUNT the money??

    C'mon, think this one might be a little bit fake, dnt you think? Anyone?

    I like how many comments I read about how people think they're immune to tricks like these. The truth is this can happen to anyone, if the right person is running the conversation. Darren is really really really good at steering people through conversations and he understands the mind insanely well. Trust me he could pull one of his tricks over on you (he has about 100 different ones right now.)

    It's fake... Go to a jewelry store and pay several thousand in cash and see if they don't test every one of your bills with a marker at least.

    Well the guy figured it out eventually, but by then it was too late. The point of the clip was to show that you can trick people on a subconscious level to take your suggestions of "take it its fine." that suggestion alone bought him enough time to take the jewelry and was allowed out of the store before the money was counted.
