I must admit that reading through the plethora of comments concerning the legitimacy of this video makes me laugh. When you're immersed in something and don't have ample time to step back and look at the situation with any clarity then it is very difficult to see the wood for the trees. Not every one knows about the procedures that take place on a plane to ensure that one capable pilot is flying the plane whatever happens. Not everyone knows that. Only people who have an acute or passing interest in planes, aeronautics, avionics and piloting may potentially learn of such a thing. The heroic gene is something that cannot be tested, not unless the participant in the experiment is a) unaware there is even an experiment under way, and b) is believable enough to promote action. The action in this case is heroism - something which not a lot of people have, and even fewer people are ever tested to discover whether they have it or not. And by test I mean being in a situation which demands them to make an unconscious decision to jump to the aid of some one or some thing. And when asked 'why' they did it - they could never give you a straight answer, most just feel they 'had' to. This boy had some conscious train of thought to pluck up the courage to be the hero, and I think that was part of Derrens goal, to alter the way this boy ways up the risks and to give it a shot regardless. It could have easily failed, but Derren is very good at manipulating emotions through his techniques and he achieved what he wanted to achieve. To make a passive and unconfident young man step up and do something 99.99% of the population wouldn't dare do. So, with all that being said. Just because something is unbelievable, or improbable, doesn't make it impossible. Take from it what you will, but I for one would applaud the lad because at some point you just have to put your hands together and give credit where credits due.

Doesn't this whole show smell staged and scripted? Can't put someone on a train track and hope he'll get it done in the last second.

Now that you're in a straight jacket, would you kindly lie on these train tracks? Nothing sketchy, I promise.

I love how Derren Brown uses his talents to demonstrate the viewers that personal transformation can be achieved if you first change your thinking. Bravo Derren!

I'm a hero now. Got my arm amputated after stroking a croc, bullet in my lung after tackling armed robbers, and no money in my bank after being fined for trespass and theft of party equipment. Thanks Derren!
