Well, the Ladbrokes betting people have done it again, and are offering odds of 2000/1 of a festive zombie apocolypse!

That’s right,  if the dead start to rise at chrimbo, you can be sure of netting a big win, although if that’s the case you’d be hard pressed to even cash it in or spend it for that matter! It really makes you think of those out there that possibly will shell out a few quid on having a bet on this, and even so it’s meant to be a joke (like a previous years odds offered as part of a promo for dead island) there willbe some poor sap taking them up on the offer!

In reality, we are more likely to get invaded by aliens or WW3 (not WWZ), but with the trend of zombies popularised by The Walking Dead and other media, I imagine we’ll be seeing more and more crazy zombie related promotions and so forth.

They’ll be offering odds on clown sightings next!

Watch Derren Brown’s Apocolypse Online Now!

9 Nov

Understanding and Embracing Diversity


One of the UK’s most famous magician/TV personality, Derren Brown has teamed up with Channel 4 to create one of the most entertaining two-part shows I have ever seen, named Derren Brown’s Apocalypse. In this series, Derren and his team led Steven Brosnan to believe that the world is about to end. Steven was fed false information about a meteor that was about to strike the world through tweets, news coverage and TV advertisements- all manufactured by Derren Brown and his team, with the help of Steven’s family (the show reminded me of The Truman Show- trailer below). Steven then rode a bus with his brother- also one of Brown’s accomplice- with the belief that he was going to a gig by The Killers. The bus stopped due to some problems and they witnessed explosion after explosion. After being hypnotized by Brown, Steven woke up in what looked like a…

Derren Brown’s Anticlimactic Apocolypse…

5 Nov

“When I click my fingers, you will wake up and not think I’m the biggest twat on the earth..1, 2, 3, click…”

So, did you see the conclusion to the two part Apocolypse?

I watched eager to laugh at this weeks episode, but alas  there were not as many this week.

Sure the poor lad was heartbroken when he failed to get airlifted out of the compound, call  me cruel, but that was funny, it just was this concluding part was lacking the promise of the last one. the premise of the stunt was a good one, the execution was stale at the end.

Don’t get me wrong, the zombie in his pants was funny as well, it just all came to shite. Maybe what they are saying is true about stephen being an actor? I have always been suspicious about hypnotists and their apparent ability to control people. Apparent being the catch word!

For us in the UK you can catch it on 4OD and youtube, as ever I will post it here when I get a link for those outside the UK, or if any readers have any link to it, let me know and then we can all share!!
