Russell Brand: Wedding Crasher

  • While out celebrating during his stag party, Russell Brand decided it might be fun to crash a wedding, much to the happy couple's dismay.

"Russell completely took over and was dancing away at the reception. The groom wasn't very happy about the fact that the spotlight had been taken away from him and his new bride. He went over to the DJ who was playing English tunes and asked him to change the music to more Asian music in a bid to get Russell to stop dancing. But Russell just kept on dancing." In a video at the link, it appears that the guests, at least, are excited to see him. [NewsOfTheWorld]
