The Drugstore Hypnotist

Ralph Pearson's 15-minutes of fame came in 1951, when he briefly gained some notoriety as the Drugstore Hypnotist. He was a drugstore owner who hypnotized his customers, making them believe they were flying an airplane, or that they were the Statue of Liberty. This was in the days before CVS and Walmart, when people actually hung out and socialized in drugstores.

A much more pleasant time. Today the hypnotist would be accused of sexual impropriety with the teens or worse yet the hypnotist would actually be committing sexual improprieties with them.
