Oh, they work all right, on the weak minded. The placebo effect is real and has real psychological power, however, being entirely subjective it's just not that welcome in an objective environment; however this level of it strains credibility, if this is serious, there are some really stupid gullible people out there ... it must be a joke, right??? ;~)

"I’m hearing things I’ve never heard before!"  - you mean besides them voices in your head?

When snake oil peddlers resort to such depths of BS'ing, I can't help thinking of an expression in my native Portuguese language which goes "Me engana que eu gosto!"

Which freely translates to "Fool me, 'cause I love it!"
