Yes. Yes it did. Piers Morgan had the noted security expert, “comedian” Russell Brand, weigh in on the NSA scandal on Friday night.
LOL @CNN having Russell Brand on talking about Guns in America and the NSA scandal with Piers Morgan.

Piers Morgan is interviewing Russell Brand. That must be a little bit of what hell is like.

Heh. Well, now we know at least.
The mockery after the show was side-splitting and Twitter users are still gasping for breath.

Has CNN interviewed Russell Brand about Kim Kardashian's baby yet?
— Shawn Reynolds (@ShawnWTVM9) June 15, 2013
Yes, CNN, Russell Brand is the first person whose insight America seeks on the NSA scandal.

LOL! RT @WCL_Shawn: "Russell Brand on CNN really changed my opinion on the whole NSA thing," said no one.

Just glanced at CNN to be confronted with this chyron: "Russell Brand on the NSA Scandal." I'm going to have to TiVo this.

Russell Brand is holding forth on the NSA scandal. Apparently CNN tried for Paula Dean but she was already booked tonight. #JokeNetwork

@JJ_McDubie Brand is a National Security expert. Comedians know their shit. E.g. Carrot Top was on CNN today commenting on US fiscal policy.

Dude. Bonus points for the Carrot Top reference.
