Russell Brand Embraces Willy Wonka And The Beatles For Olympics Closing Ceremony

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteRussell Brand

Russell Brand is the Walrus!

The British comedian represented his country during the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony on Sunday night by channeling Willy Wonka and The Beatles.

He took us into a realm of Pure Imagination by singing (above) a few lines from the 1971 musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantasy novel before segueing into a so-so cover of I Am The Walrus.

Not bad, but we would have loved to see his alter ego, Aldous Snow, cover the song with a bit more of a rock star edge.

Or maybe he could have just performed Bangers, Beans & Mash. Ha!
