English funnyman Russell Brand has joked that he could have been a member of One Direction when he was younger. The comedian took to his official Twitter account to post a picture of himself when he was much younger along with the caption "I could have been in One Direction!"
The tweet soon caught the attention of the One Direction boys and a number of their fans, with Harry Styles retweeting Russell Brand, saying, "fit right in". However, some fans were not impressed, with one in particular stating, "You couldn't sing in Get Him to the Greek so can't imagine One Direction would want ya!!"
This then brought out the usual One Direction haters, claiming that if Russell Brand can't sing then surely he would fit right in with One Direction. Either way, it was only a bit of fun from the funnyman and he was clearly mocking the fact that he was a bit bigger in his younger years.
Russell Brand recently spoke about Harry Styles, after somebody suggested that they could be rivals when it comes to the ladies. However, Russell insisted that they wouldn't be fighting over women of the same age, before realising that Harry has a reputation as a cougar hunter.
