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!

    I noticed in 2019 you're not on your Trump shit, Sean. How about admitting you were a cucky little turd for a long time?

    He doesn't strike me as particularly intelligent. Opinionated yes, but the way he presents his thoughts and expressions don't intrigue me. In fact, I don't like him.

      I think it's hilarious how much more eloquently people type in this comment section than other hot ones videos. It's as if Russel's vocabulary has rubbed off on the viewers. Even this comment. You could have easily said "Fuck this dumb cunt, dont like him one bit", but instead carefully explained what you don't like about him.

    Some of the shit dribbling out of his mouth makes sense. Otherwise it is just that, shit. Eloquence does not equal profundity. I think he broke his brain with drugs.

    I'm always and forever by Russell's eloquence and wisdom, even in this situation where he actually performed very well! I thought he would be exploding but no, he took it like a champ until the very last wing, so I'm impressed.

    *Loving the vegan wings!* I would have loved to try them! With all the vegan wings and guests that your having, you should include them in the vignette as well. As a vegan, health and environment advocate myself, I’d love that!
    Keep up all the good work!!

    I have only ever heard people talk about Russell Brand, but I never actually saw or heard himself talking. I am pleasantly surprised. He is eloquent, creative and seems like a really nice dude and loving new dad. I am glad I have no clue about the opinions of so many other people in these comments, because for me this was just really fun to watch. And spice wise, respect for the man. He did well.
