Matt Lucas's hypnotist character on Little Britain is also fond of the phrase 'Look into my eyes'

In the latest incident captured on video footage the man walked into a bank in Ancona in northern Italy.
He waited until he got to a female bank clerk and, according to the video footage, appears to hypnotise her into handing over more than £600. He then calmly walked out.

I heard the trigger phrase was "Afghanistan banana-stand".

If I could do that, I'd spend all my time hypnotizing hot chicks into giving me blow jobs, cleaning my apartment then leaving (in that order).


He was stupid. I was lucky. I will visit him soon.
I’m certainly glad that people are starting to realize the dangerous power of hypnotism and have not went for the obvious answer that the thief and clerks are working together, or simply that this entire idiotic story is made-up.
