Hypnosis. The very word separates people into two distinct groups: those who believe that it’s real, and those who think it’s a bunch of hooey. If you fall into the latter category, you likely won’t be as impressed as we were with the video below. But if you’re a member of the former group, keep reading!
We have to admit, we weren’t quite sure we believed in this stuff until we saw Chris Jones take the America’s Got Talent stage and hypnotize Howie Mandel right on the spot. Watch as the skeptical judge goes out like a light, ultimately doing something no one ever believed he would while “asleep.” The outcome leaves the other judges and crowd alike going absolutely bananas.
Hypnosis is defined by Wikipedia as “a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion.” We’d say that’s definitely what happened here! If you know anything about Howie Mandel, you know that he’d never perform this action if he was aware of what he was doing.
What did you think of Chris Jones’ hypnotist act? Do you believe in this stuff or think it’s a bit hokey? Have you ever been hypnotized before? Sound off in the comments below and make sure to SHARE if you found this as unbelievable as we did.
