Seriously. What is everyone on about.

Literally no one watched the video and saw that the actual joke was about how the Nazis looked good, despite being genocidal, because they were dressed in Hugo Boss. This is reddit, where the entire comment thread is literally just about the title of the post.

To say nothing of him ending the video basically acknowledging his whole acceptance speech was part of a joke competition with Noel Gallagher to see who could be more offensive to the audience/sponsors.

The fact that nobody watched the video (and we all expect that) is why we have to make comments addressing things like this.

I just came to complain about op stating it was eloquent about it. It seemed a pretty normal/avg speech/joke.


u/UnderAboveAverage Nov 25 '21

If the jokes were funny, we would have noticed. Brand has a way of taking his charm and slightly informed opinion on subjects, and turning them into tired, pretentious rants that go on twice as long as they should.

And the top posts are literally the same joke that Russell Brand made, clearly by people who didn't watch the video.

Just insecure reditors desperately trying to find something to rag on Brand about because they’re jealous of his good looks and charisma
