Trews, the YouTube channel by English comedian, actor, author, activist and celebrity Russel Brand, promises to “unravel the matrix of modern media and reveal the gleaming reality beyond connecting us all to each other through pure consciousness. Or it’s true news. Trews.”
Similarly to Jason Silva, Brand brings YouTube viewers big, sparkling ideas in concise and accessible form. However, with a different mixture of elements: Less Californian techno-utopian ideas, and more social- and media critique on the state of global society; less scenic imagery and more hilarious humor.
The trews YouTube channel tackles issues like “Why so hard on the silk road?” “Are we all terrorists now?” and “Can Jeb Bush finally win WW2 for the Nazis?”. Above one of Brand’s more lucid videos, on the question of God’s existence.
