TOTALLY MENTAL - BLINDFOLD DRIVE!

Totally Mental Blindfold Drive

Blindfolded and hooded, Shepton Mallet mentalist and hypnotist Andy Canning pauses to shake hands with the Cats Protection mascot during his drive around an obstacle course in the car park at Orchard Vets, Glastonbury on Sunday April 19th, 2009 at 2.30 p.m.

The blindfold and hood were examined before the drive and declared 100% lightproof. Once Andy was fully hooded the course was laid out using traffic cones and the CP mascot.

Andy then drove around the obstacles pausing occasionally to reach out and touch the Cat. At no time were any cones hit though on one approach the sharp turn needed a quick stop and reverse to achieve the manoeuvre. Two cyclists riding past nearly fell off their bikes when they realised what was happening!

Amazingly the course was completed at normal driving speeds although Andy did say that if hed had a passenger hed probably have slowed down so as not to terrify them!

Andy and the CP mascot will be at the Cats Protection Spring Fair in Wells Town Hall on Saturday 25th April.
