Jason Segel’s New Lovesong for Russell Brand
Jason Segel is back to his old tricks. And by old tricks we mean being awesome and writing explicit songs for Russell Brand to shower us with. In Nicholas Stoller’s upcoming film, Get Him to the Greek, Brand reprises his Forgetting Sarah Marshall role as Infant Sorrow frontman, Aldous Snow. (We saw the film, it’s awesome.) In the film, he performs the song “Bangers, Beans, & Mash”, written by Jason Segel.
When asked if the song had any metaphorical meanings, Brand told The Collider, “No, it’s not a metaphor because it has no other reality other than its own very specific notion so it has no comparative of value. It is not a metaphor because it’s just itself. It can’t mean anything else.” Clear enough? “Bangers” is actually a British euphemism for tits, so we can only imagine what these beans and mash are referring to (and trust us, we are.) Listen to the song for yourself and be your own judge.
