Descriptive of the powers possessed by master illusionist Derren Brown. The apparent ability to predict and control the behaviour of others using magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship. Occasionally, and sometimes unexpectedly, we mere mortals can experience fleeting success with our own Brown Powers.
“I offered her the last chocolate biscuit but she succumbed to my Brown Powers, insisting that I have it”
