Chris Hughes plans to place more than 6,000 people from around the world into a trance today. As part of SocialTrance, the numbers will be used to attempt the setting of a world record — people signed up to go under by participating on Facebook and Twitter.
Hughes told The Independent that participants are registering at a tremendous pace.
“Social media is all about bringing people together, so it is a perfect way to help educate the world about hypnosis. Now I’m getting one to two registrations a minute, it has gone absolutely mad.”
The Independent report has much more about what people should do if they want to participate. Heads up, though: You have about 8 hours to sign up. The event takes place at 2:30 p.m. Central today (8:30 p.m. GMT). While you wait, you can join our Facebook fan page or follow us on Twitter.
