Russell Brand’s stints filming for his new documentary on the financial crisis have so far seen him storm RBS and upset a bank employee by causing his lunch to go cold.

Now Mr S learns that the 39-year-old comedian’s forays haven’t stopped with capitalist banks. Brand recently made an unwelcome visit to the home of Lord Rothermere, the proprietor of the Daily Mail newspaper group.

The comedian turned up unannounced at the London residence of the executive chairman of the Daily Mail and General Trust, traipsing through his front garden with a camera crew in tow.

Unfortunately for Brand, both Lord Rothermere and his wife Claudia weren’t at the property at the time of his visit. The footage was intended to be used for the documentary he is making with with Michael Winterbottom, titled the Emperor’s New Clothes.

This isn’t the first time Brand has turned his attentions to the Daily Mail. In December he tweeted a Daily Mail reporter’s mobile number to his eight million followers. He subsequently deleted the tweet after a public backlash.

A spokesman for Brand declined to comment on the incident.
