Russell Brand mocks British films on US TV
Mr Katy Perry sends up ‘extremely British’ gangster films in new sketch for Saturday Night Live (with video)
Russell Brand has well and truly turned his back on the old country with a skit mocking British accents for a Saturday Night Live special. The mock trailer for Don' You Go Rounin' Roun to Re Ro, a take off of gritty UK gangster films like Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, was shown as part of Brand's first-ever hosting gig for the primetime US comedy show on the weekend.
Starring SNL's Bill Hadar as an ex-con with a mouth full of marbles, the film promises to have plenty of violence and unfathomable accents, with an American voiceover declaring it to be "a can't-miss British film, if you like movies you cannot understand".Brand also poked fun at Colin Firth's turn in The King’s Speech during the show and dragged up as a grandma during a segment called 'A Spot Of Tea'. ·
