The Freaky Trigger Top 25 Brands Of All Time Not Just Summer 2006 Which Makes This One All The More Embarrassing No.16: RUSSELL BRAND

Blog 7 + FT///6 comments • 5,787 views

In a move similar to The Freaky Trigger Top 25 Grants, one of our entries is not a Brand like the others. Where the others are marketing heavy representatives of an ethos, structure and mindset behind a product, number 16 is a person. A famous person admittedly, and one whose own recent meteoric rise (and partial fall) was peaking when we created the list. We were also quite drunk.
Ahem. Ballbags

But he is better than Russell Grant. Who was number 8 in the top 25 Grants. Beaten by the Sea Grant of North Carolina, the Grant of Executive Clemency and of course the eventual winner: A generous Arts Council Grant.

    She’s got her Kate Winslet routine, just like Harry Secombe had his shaving routine.

    Indeed, the Winslet routine is such a paper thin joke (and performance) that the amount of times it comes up pushed me beyond incredulity into starting to admire the chutzpah for something that clearly does not work, to then almost being bludgeoned into finding it funny.
