'Get Him to the Greek' unedited opening sequence: The fall of Aldous Snow

Posted on

Funny or Die has the full, unedited opening sequence of Get Him to the Greek. It shows Russell Brand filming the video for his band Infant Sorrow’s latest single, “African Child,” in which he’s dressed as “an African white space Christ.” Naturally, controversy erupts and the track tanks. “‘African Child’ worst thing for Africa since Apartheid,” reads one headline. His wife, international pop star Jackie Q (Damages‘ Rose Byrne), leaves him in a spectacular way — I won’t spoil it — and we see his downward spiral. Watch it below. A promising beginning, I think. For more, read Owen Gleiberman’s review of the film.
