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!

    considering the lack of substance when he first came out on that big brother commentary show and all that shit before, even, i think he's actually turned into a rather fine human being. he's trying to get at something worthwhile, and that's really all the best of us can try to do.

    At 13 minutes and 40 seconds Sean Evan asks Russell Brand a question that answer is absolutely the best answer I've been given in a long time and I'm really proud to know that this actor is aware of the fact that there is other people and that he knows that the majority of us feel like our position in this world why we're here is to be nicer to other people around us it just reaffirms to me that there good people still in this world

    I felt like he bit right through the dalop on the last wing, thus dodging half the sauce, and therefore, half the spice factor.
    Still though, he did all of them without sweating or bitching, so greatness must be recognized wherever it's found.
    Great job, Sober Russell!

    as a woman, i love how he seemed to be seriously pondering the concept of why women hv done so much better on this "challenge" and that it could be reduced to women intrinsically hvng a higher tolerance for pain because they know their bodies are equipped for childbirth...epic and funny at the same time lol

    Gotta love Russell Brand don't you, He's like this relaxed crazy funny guy who you don't know if you can take seriously but then on the other hand he's incredibly interesting in the way of which he speaks & shows that he truly is a highly intelligent articulate guy who's not got a pole up his ass & doesn't take life to seriously but can also hold a conversation and show that he has a world of knowledge.....
    Best part at the end "You know what that's really f*cked me up Shaun"
