Actor/comedian Russell Brand has done a lot of things in his life/career that have made some people upset, like the terrible reboot of Arthur or marrying Katy Perry. But Brand’s appearance in Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds music video for “AKA What A Life!” is surely one of the better things he’s ever done. In this eight-minute clip, Brand plays a character that’s one part Morpheus, one part Crossroads Demon, musing on the duality of existence before forcing a sweet blue liquid down our poor heroine’s throat. But before his wicked machinations can occur, Brand curses Gallagaher’s name. And cue the bad trip/metaphysical journey that ends with Gallagher vanquishing brand’s harpies and rescuing the poor maiden. Enter the rabbit hole at your own speed below.
