KOREM: Why did you feel that you had to tell people that you had
powers that you didn’t have?
HYDRICK: Because I wanted attention. My parents would never give
it to me. I would always be ignored or kicked around. I had to do
this to make me feel good. It gave me confidence. Everytime
someone thought what I did was very good but I’d never tell them
what it was. I’d tell them it was something else. Because if I
told them what it was they would say “Fine, it’s just a trick.”
But I would always tell them it was something else so I would
continue to get recognition.
KOREM: You were on “That’s Incredible” a few months ago and you
really tricked them.
HYDRICK: I tricked the whole world.
KOREM: Yes. What did it make you feel like?
HYDRICK: I did that to reach. It’s like a hand reaching out for
recognition. I don’t know…I just wanted to be known. I needed
to be recognized. All my life, I’ve been…I hate to keep going
back to the past, but I don’t know. I wanted to do that because
it was different. I just wanted to see how open minded people
were. I wanted to see if these people who were so-called
intelligent and I was so-called dumb; I mean, surely I’m here for
a reason. My whole idea behind this in the first place was to see
how dumb America was. How dumb the world is.
