I know. Everything about him is "LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!"
I'm too lazy to dig up a Stuart gif, but you can use your imagination.
I participated in stage hypnosis my senior year of high school when I was 17. there were like 300 people there and a bunch of former teachers of mine. I was one of the 6 that remained on stage the entire time due to being "under" consistently and very responsive. I stole the show apparently (I could kind of tell, but was told so afterwards) as compared to everyone else I was far more flamboyant expressive articulate and would do everything I was told fully. In some respect it was fun to me cause I felt like I got to "show off" and also got a lot of attention. In a weird way it I experienced doing it as an ego boost and validation.
During the entire experience, and going into it I had enough of a sense that if I wanted to I could "snap out of it" but I very much wanted to experience it all. I was terrified of the idea of hypnosis as a child (particularly the on stage form) but also secretly wanted to experience it. Very push-pull. Part of me wondered to if it was "real". It was confirmed to me that it wasn't nearly as invasive as I thought it was when I was told I would hear music coming out of my shoe. I didn't. Instead, I acted out the part because it was expected of me. It almost felt like I would get in trouble if I didn't
respond to the suggestion, and respond in very convincing way. I sort of put myself in auto-pilot and largely tuned out all visual input so I existed in a very small contained space. There were several points where I felt very embarassed about what I was doing, and I actually didn't want to. The worst of them was the post-stage suggestion after we went to our seats. Mine was to jump up and down and loudly shout "I am a nerd and I am proud!" over and over off a cue word. The host absolutely loved
how I responded and would just leave me going for upwards of 20 second clips. I really didn't like doing it, but I did anyway as it was expected of me and "part of the deal". My friend playfully tried to use the trigger word in the hallway after everyone left and I didn't react as it was officially out of context and didn't want to.
Basically, through my experience it showed I am really good at acting, adapting, and convincing people of what I want them to think my inner states and experiences were. This was a learned skill from having to survive around my neo-nazi father, actually. When he punished me, he expected that not only do I obey, but feel and think in a specific way, and if I didn't he would punish me further. He'd watch my body language and facial expressions and if I didn't show exactly what he wanted, or showed any sign of an internal state of not feeling bad, remorse, or acknowledgement I'd be in even further trouble. So, that skill dove-tailed really well in a stage hypnosis context. It's not so much that I am suggestive, but that when a situation calls for it or its socially acceptable, I can blend in completely.
The way I experienced it is just one of many ways people can experience stage hypnosis. If I ever went to one again I wouldn't allow myself to go into it, as there is no longer any appeal in doing so, and if anything I feel a very strong aversion to that sort of thing. I'm also very opposed to therapy hyponosis due to context-specific trust issues.
Edit: I shall do it for you:
