Online hypnotist calls off stunt
Tuesday 05 January 2010
An attempt to set a record for a live online hypnotherapy session was abandoned at the last minute last night after the organiser, Chris Hughes, claimed international legal restrictions prevented the broadcast from going ahead.
He also admitted that the attempt would not qualify for Guinness World Records as it could not be officially validated. The Banbury-based hypnotist resorted to a digital audio file for users to download and listen to in their own time. Users vented their frustration on Twitter. One post read: "Give me 20 minutes of my life back!"
Mr Hughes, 34, said on his site: "I am totally gutted that we could not do it live. I am sorry if I have disappointed you all."
