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!

    Is anyone else noticing Russel is only taking one small bite from each wing? That's kind of disappointing.

    Literally NO ONE mentioning Russell's disgusting "hail satan" comment at the beginning of the video. I don't care if people take it as a "joke"; all the dark spiritual stuff Russell is into is definitely NOT a joke and is misguiding people away from eternal salvation.
    It really seems like we're definitely living in the end times. I pray that Jesus opens people's eyes that are blind to the reality of the enemy's antics.
