    Each member of the audience at Derren Brown's show is wearing a mask to protect their identity, and Chris is the victim of the audience's decisions. Dave, a cast member, smashes valuable electronics in Chris' house because the audience voted for it. Next, the audience can vote for Chris to either win a cash prize or be kidnapped, and it votes for the kidnapping. During both events, the audience is excited and enjoys the things happening to Chris until he gets hit by a car, at which point they learn the valuable lesson that anyone is susceptible to deindividuation.
