Video: Russell Brand Crashes Into Homeless Person's Cart (But Helps Clean Up the Mess!)

Actor Russell Brand is a friend of those far less fortunate than he; as we know, he has taken homeless people to breakfast before, and now he helped one with their full shopping cart.

Well, actually, when it comes to the latter, the first thing that happened was Brand drove into the shopping cart with his SUV. Then he stopped to help tidy it all up.

Naturally, the omnipresent eyes of TMZ have video of the clean-up. Brand (in all-white) is joined by several other people who together make short work of making it look like nothing happened.
