Love him or hate him, the British comedian, actor, radio host, TV presenter, author, and activist, Russell Brand is hot property in entertainment circles, but is there something sinister lurking in his background?
Brand has always been controversial, having got his big break in 2004, in the Channel 4 Big Brother spin-off show, 'Big Brother's Big Mouth'. He did voice parts for 'Despicable Me' in 2010, and 'Despicable Me 2' in 2013, proving, if indeed, any proof were needed, his thoroughly despicable nature. He then went back to comedy and released his stand-up special 'Messiah Complex'.
In 2015, a biographical documentary called 'Brand: A Second Coming' was released. People started to ask:
"Is he the 'Despicable Messiah'? Is he an 'evil saviour'?"
Brand's somewhat relaxed view of promiscuity and drug-taking, along with his marked outspokenness, have earned him a good deal of bad press, and a certain amount of notoriety, with some people even likening him to the devil.
And, whilst there is nothing concrete to conclude that Brand is the Anti-Christ, a strange occurrence in the days leading up to his birth suggest that powerful and mystical forces may have been at work in an attempt to forewarn us of a terrible dread that was approaching.
Brand was born on 4 June, 1975. Two days before this, on 2 June, during a spell of extremely hot weather in the UK, a cold snap swept over the country. Snow fell all across the land - in June! - interrupting cricket fixtures as far apart as England's highest town, Buxton, in Derbyshire, and Colchester, in Essex. At the time, it was a 'weather story', but, after the 1976 movie 'The Omen: 666' hit the headlines, everyday folk became Satan-conscious. Had something unnatural been born?
With Brand's emergence into the limelight, experts have since considered whether this unseasonal snow two days before Brand's birth in June 1975 wasn't some kind of portent that 'something was afoot' in our green and pleasant land.
Or was it a 'star above the stable' moment?
Is he the Anti-Christ?,
Or just an upstart dickhead with pubes on his chin and face, come to save us?
