Celebrity Hammers fan perplexes Americans with football ritual

After calling George Bush a “retarded cowboy” and sharing some choice words about the Jonas Brothers’ lifestyle choices at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, Russell Brand was asked back to present the 2009 show. Thanks to the antics of detestable rapper Kanye West, the former Guardian football columnist went relatively unnoticed at this year’s show, but footage of the West Ham fan promoting it has been brought to The Spoiler’s attention.
