While he’s been shooting his new film Arthur, Russell Brand has been spotted gallivanting around New York in a variety of bizarre costumes – including a top hat, and at one point a Batman costume.

But in his latest “hilarious” stunt for the film the comedian stripped down to nothing but his underwear and a pair of fetching black socks yesterday as he shot yet more no-doubt side-splitting scenes in Manhattan.

We remember him having more hair than that though…
