Twitter users have been replying to controversial comedian Russell Brand's posts with the word "Parklife," a song by British rock band Blur.
It all started when Twitter user Dan Barker, no fan of Brand’s writing, tweeted:
Russell Brand's writing feels like someone is about to shout "PARKLIFE!" at the end of every sentence. pic.twitter.com/3uio7yrOfo— dan barker (@danbarker) November 2, 2014
The track has pompous-sounding lyrics always followed by Blur lead singer Damon Albarn shouting "Parklife."
No doubt Mr. Barker has taken a strong dislike to Brand’s book “Revolution” – which, like its author, is also not new to controversy.
Not only has his tweet gone viral over the last few days but people have taken his words way too seriously:
Though the trend may have caused some irritation for Brand, he has yet to show any visible reaction.
Not that others are waiting for his reaction to come:
Barker, on the other hand, is also pretty unremorseful:
Now Russell Brand is not new to controversy or creating waves online – be it his spat with Sean Hannity or his branding Fox News more dangerous than ISIS, the man knows how to get in the news for pretty controversial reasons.
