According to a 2008 NY Times article, psychologists in Britain and the U.S. reported a number of people experiencing “Truman Syndrome” or “The Truman Show delusion” - the belief that they are the unwitting star of their own reality-TV show. Reportedly, many of those afflicted have specifically mentioned the film while in therapy. More recently, on Sept. 16, 2013, the detailed account of one Ohio student who suffered for years from the Truman Show delusion is documented in the New Yorker magazine article, “Unreality Star”, by Andrew Marantz.

“Henry that’s what he’s supposed to do-“
“I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY HE ORDERED A CONE IF HE WAS JUST GONNA TAKE THE ICE CREAM-“

His life has been defined by this moment.
