A South Shields guitar teacher had his 15 minutes of fame after a verbal joust with controversial comedian Russell Brand.
The comic answered a question put to him by James Rundle on his YouTube channel.
In his online news show, The Trews, Brand discussed how he had been branded a hypocrite by The Sun Newspaper because of his housing arrangements.
Mr Rundle who owns Rock Licks Guitar Tuition http://www.rock-licks.com and https://www.youtube.com/user/jamesrundle72 YouTube channel posted his question 'Russell, is your bedroom wall real brick or brick wallpaper? Brick wallpaper is hypocrisy in its purest form'
Brand read the question out before standing up from the edge of his bed and patting the wall to show it's real brick.
