Russell Brand Achieves Enlightenment While Eating Spicy Wings | Hot Ones

  • Published on Mar 2, 2017
  • In what may be the greatest tour de force in Hot Ones history, comedian and truthsayer Russell Brand transforms from a spice novice to a full-on capsaicin junkie while facing the wings of death. After bantering with host Sean Evans about everything from visiting Donald Trump's tower to being a West Ham United super fan, Brand finds that his consciousness is awakened by the hot sauce. Eventually, he's moved to freestyle an impromptu song for a very special Hot Ones fan. You don't want to miss this!

    This guy is so eloquent and well spoken, whether it's about the current geo-political situation in the world, or about a funny dog peeing while standing upside down, it makes you wonder - "How the fk?!!" How did this guy go from being an ex-drug and other stuff addict (yeah, here i show my lack of eloquence), to this extremely, shockingly in fact, well spoken persona?!
    Kudos to you Russell... Bravo!
    (and yeah, i know, he was a damn good intelligent bastrd before, during and after the drugs, and now he's simply able to converse what he was unable before, due to the fog of drugs)
