Russell Brand Gives Viral Interview About Politics (VIDEO)

+

In a post on Gawker called “Russell Brand May Have Started a Revolution Last Night,” the website claims that Russell Brand may have started a revolution last night. How? By giving an interview on the old boob tube. We’ll admit that it’s a stirring ten minutes of Brand–who’s always been one of the more eloquent people in Hollywood–going off on BBC interviewer Jeremy Paxman about our world’s many injustices. Paxman doesn’t take Brand too seriously first (he must have seen Arthur), but it’s fun to watch Brand verbally bludgeon this stodgy old Brit into submission and then something that resembles quiet respect. But that’s really all it is: a fun video to watch; the next entry in an exhausting assembly line of viral content that we’ll watch, share, and forget about literally tomorrow.
