RUSSELL Brand has enjoyed the comfort of a Mercedes Benz, just like Adolf Hitler.
The actor and comedian has attacked fashion label Hugo Boss for its Nazi past, but not Mercedes because, according to experts, their cars have a lot of leg room in the back.
Julian Cook, professor of German things at Roehampton University, said: “Russell’s a tall man and he needs the space you get in the back of an S-Class.
“Now the standard S-class has a wheelbase of just over three metres, which is good, but the open-topped 770 was almost four metres and so had room for Hitler, Himmler, Goebbels and Bormann.”
Brand, who wears Hugo Boss clothes when he is not comparing them to SS uniforms, also enjoys other products with inconvenient Nazi entanglements.
Recent photos show Brand driving an Audi, part of Volkswagen Group, which produced a famous car which was the brainchild of a famous genocidal maniac.
Meanwhile, historians have suggested that Brand could learn more about Nazi persecution if he spoke to victims, such as 83 year-old Fawlty Towers star Andrew Sachs.
Professor Martin Bishop said: “Sachs is German-Jewish and escaped from Berlin in 1938. Just a few decades later Russell Brand fucked his granddaughter and then told him all about it in a dirty phone message.”
Bishop added: “He could also trying making a film that isn’t a crime against humanity.”
