Video: Russell Brand sings West Ham chants on US television chat show
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.
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon (a popular yet unfunny comedian and talk show host with an irritating habit of laughing during his own jokes), the conversation turns towards West Ham, and Brand happily belts out chants commonly heard at the The Boleyn Ground, to the utter bemusement of the American audience.
Check out part two of the interview, which contains the raucous chants, after the jump…
