I once made a group of people walk around the stage like a train - and one guy even came round believing he was a Japanese comedian

A German man is claiming he can hypnotise people with his ears.

Hannibal Helmurto, 39, says if someone stares at the rotating discs he has put in his stretched lobes he can make them do anything.

The circus performer - who says he took up hypnotism to help his sword swallowing - said: "I found out straight away it was easier hypnotising people with my ears than my eyes.

"I once made a group of people walk around the stage like a train - and one guy even came round believing he was a Japanese comedian. But he couldn't speak a word of Japanese so it was just the words he believed in his own mind were right."
