Back to the Full Issue



Cops in Italy are searching for a thief who is hypnotising supermarket and bank staff to give him money out of the till. Obviously discarding the well trodden Paul McKenna route of turning a tiresome party trick into a multi-billion self-help empire, the crook is taking the more direct route to relieve the eternally gullible from their money. In a nice touch, the last thing the cashiers recall is the hypnotist saying “Look into my eyes”, before remembering nothing at all of events after that, when they calmly handed over bundles of cash to the mystery man.

Now, that’s magic.
