    On September the 11th, Derren Brown is presenting another of his trick shows, called "The Events." Channel 4 have released a couple of videos recently, to advertise it, but the major one which caught my eye was this one:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb-JcgmyM0c

    It's a mixture of backwards and forwards... or so it appears. When played backwards though, this is what you get:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTTPrpdcpBw

    Very interesting. If you look in the background, there are some hidden messages or URLs to websites - Some are backwards, some forwards.

    Number 1 - The bus. Which has "It Will Be You" written on it.

    Number 2 - The billboard. Which has "Manchester United" on it, written backwards, but ".com" is forwards...

    Number 3 - Pizza adverts on the bus shelter. "Stuck To My Sofa"

    These all translate out as actual websites.

    http://itwillbeyou.info/

    Details 4 events - MAYBE the 4 which Derren will be explaining on the 11th Sept. This website isn't confirmed, and nowhere on it does it even mention Channel 4, so it could just be a fan site or a fake.

    http://www.retsehcnamdetinu.com/

    Appears to be a website completely backwards. I can't find a portable mirror in my house, so I can't decipher it, but I'll try later... It looks interesting and football related. If you click on any of the links, you get taken to a Derren Brown site hosted by Channel 4.

    http://www.stucktomysofa.com/

    And this pizza website, which if you click "Order Now," you get sent to a Derren Brown site.

    Anyone get any more info?

    EDIT: OK by doing a quick search the domain http://itwillbeyou.info is registered to derern borwn (Yes spelt wrongly?) and the admin is Brad Howard

    The hosting is located in the UK.

    OK so a bit of the domain registrant info is

    [REDACTED DUE TO REQUEST]

    and the admin info is

    [REDACTED DUE TO REQUEST]

    I'll look into the other sites soon.

    OK so http://www.retsehcnamdetinu.com IS owned by Channel 4 it's registered to them and their studio/office in London.

    Address:
    I'll edit the post with info about the other link soon

    EDIT:

    So just looked it up and http://www.stucktomysofa.com/ is also registered to Channel 4 same info as above.

    Furthermore the Derern Bowrn post code isn't valid :/ Could it be a code? :/ Time to dig even deeper.

    so itwillbeyou.info isn't... Maybe it is just a speculation site or a fake :\

    But it does have connotations with the Lottery... because the Lottery's slogan is "It could be you" - So "It will be you" is Derren saying he can predict the numbers?

    I can't actually pull any more information on Brad Howard. But with a name like that it'll be pretty hard

    What if you phone "Brad Howard" I'd like to see what happens.

    Hi,
    I am the Brad Howard you talk of. Not a lie!
    I just googled "itwillbeyou.info" to see what happened to my domain.
    It appears whoever the guy was I sold it to has put it to some fast and good use.
    Im not happy that they havent change the WhoIS details and now mine can be found here.
    I would like my details removed from this site please.
    So any question feel free to ask me, but iam not behind this and i dont work for C4.
    Thanks
