Listen to Russell Brand speak here. While he may be known as a comedian or may be naively perceived as an un-intelligent person, he knows what he’s talking about in this clip. He also pretty much calls for revolution in this interview:

"By 2020, the labor reduction effect of digitization will cause social unrest and a quest for new economic models in several mature economies. A larger scale version of an "Occupy Wall Street"-type movement will begin by the end of 2014, indicating that social unrest will start to foster political debate."

I am shock at this video. Russell Brand continues to demonstrate that he’s incredibly smart, and that he has a better grasp on real news that TV news anchors. This is one of the most condescending fluff approaches I’ve seen on TV news, and Brand is clearly freaked out by it, then decides to try to save it by offering lessons in manners, focus, and actual news.

After you’re done watching this, read this interview Gawker did with Russell Brand about Bradley Manning: "What’s actually important? A human being doing a thing that was quite bold—possibly from a position of some personal trauma—but that regardless has brought attention to important stuff. We all know that shit goes on! But he’s brought palpable, tangible evidence of mendacious—oh no, don’t want to use that word again—conduct apparently for the protection or for the furtherment of the American people." 

Seems that someone was clearly underestimated this morning.

WTF Of the Day: So…this happened. It takes a lot to make Russell Brand look eloquent, but this duo just makes it look easy. source
