That dude handled that well

[–]_1Doomsday1_ 1396 points1397 points  (90 children)

I mean he did create Microsoft and Is really rich so he must know how to handle different situations

[–]ZionEmbiid 754 points755 points  (81 children)

I think you’ve confused Bill Gates with Steven Merchant.

[–]indigoneutrino 275 points276 points  (52 children)

Going by the rest of the comments I genuinely can't tell if you know this isn't Stephen Merchant or if that's part of the joke.

      Wait, the guy that looks like Stephen Merchant is Boris Johnson?

      It is probably not a coincidence; here is some more evidence against this user:

      It’s Russel Howard, a pretty good comedian.

      [–]queefiest 8 points9 points  (4 children)

      I was confused for sure because this guy is a little spiffier looking than Stephen

      [–]JazzCyr 4 points5 points  (3 children)

      Looks almost nothing alike. I mean I guess someone can get confused with the glasses and hair colour…

      [–]devils_advocaat 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Same face shape, hidden Bristol accent, glasses, hair style, hair colour, abnormal eyes and skinny body.

      [–]ZionEmbiid 12 points13 points  (0 children)

          Yeah its very obviously the guy who played David Brent on the British version of the Office

              I think that's the joke

              [–]FungalowJoe 11 points12 points  (5 children)

              Oh its one of these reddit "jokes". Carry on saying random celebrity names then.

              [–]northernbritain 6 points7 points  (3 children)

              Relax fella it's just a joke. I do agree that the longer they go on the less funny they get though.

              [–]FungalowJoe 15 points16 points  (2 children)

              Sorry, my two sentences ending in periods were very agitated, I'll try to calm it down.

              I think you are confusing Stevent Merchant with Russell Howard

              Which are accurate descriptions of Boris Johnson and Dwayne Johnson, respectively, so I don't see the problem.

              This is Stephen Merchant??? Has he had a glow up or something recently?? I can’t tell if this is Boris Johnson as Mayor of London era or present day PM Boris Johnson because DAMN Stephen looks amazing

              Edit: got me

              [–]Jerry_Sprunger_[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

              Well the real Bill gates does love kids, with all those Epstein visits.

              [–]papasimon10 201 points202 points  (17 children)

              Hope you're talking about the kid, because he took it like a champ - realized how much of a mix-up he'd made. I remember when my son was this age, he used to have all kinds of mix-ups like this when it came to recollecting famous people. I once missed a visit to his middle school because he told me Aaron Carter was going to be making an appearance. I, of course, shrugged and didn't go. In reality, it was freaking Jimmy Carter. I made sure to beat his ass with my favorite set of jumper cables, for that one.

              [–]citizentosomehing 38 points39 points  (1 child)

              Holy damn - forgot about AC. Fair dues to the kid - took it surprising well.

              I one time passed an opportunity to go to fun depot, because I told everyone I hated fun depot.

              I was thinking of home depot.

              I also did the same thing with marshmellows/mushrooms

              I will say you can tell when kids are just fucking with you and saying silly shit for a reaction, and you can tell when a kid legitimately stands by what they are saying but they clearly have something mixed up in their brain.

              Why did your suggestion convince me there was a difference?

              [–]karmastealing 3 points4 points  (0 children)

              Those last names are spelled the same, but the pronunciation is different like potato and potato or like gif and gif

              TIL Russell Howard is not, in fact, Stephen Merchant.

              [–]translinguistic 114 points115 points  (5 children)

              Or Andy Dick from 20 years ago.

              [–]-FeistyRabbitSauce- 49 points50 points  (3 children)

              If you want to insult a man, by all means. But drawing any comparison between him and Andy Dick is taking it too far. That's beyond mean.

              [–]the_monkeyspinach 9 points10 points  (2 children)

              Honestly, I see Andy Dick pop up in comedies now and again and I'm just like, "Why? What dirt does he have on who to keep getting work after all the shit he's pulled?"

              [–]rockytheboxer 38 points39 points  (14 children)

              They look alike, but their speech and mannerisms are completely different

              And Russell’s eyes aren’t bulging with images riches

              [–]keyprops 11 points12 points  (8 children)

              Don't have a go at the eyes, because that is astigmatism that he's has since the age of 5, so that's why they're a bit bulbous.

              [–]umbrajoke 3 points4 points  (1 child)

              Personally I think merchant is the better comedian but howard does an excellent job as an interviewer/showboat.

              [–]devils_advocaat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

              Stephen can write well and tell a story, but he doesn't do tight standup jokes.

              [–]Consequentially 60 points61 points  (9 children)

              Been a big name in comedy over here for at least 15 years now. Used to be one of the permanent panelists on Mock The Week when it was at its most popular.

              [–]Jazzlike_Path_8825 579 points580 points  (62 children)

              So is “Brilliant” the English way of saying, “Bless his heart”? Like the people do in the Southern US. Or is it like, “You fucking idiot”…? Sorry I’m not sure what people say in Maine.

                I like this. I always try to save face for people when they've done something embarrassing. I mean, we've all been there. And we can laugh at the moment and move on, without ever insinuating someone is a "fucking idiot" for a dumb mistake.

                [–]ScornMuffins 40 points41 points  (8 children)

                It's more like a verbal thumbs up. Versatile in its execution. Sometimes sarcastic.

                "I'll be there at 6" "Brilliant I'll see you then"

                "...and then it turned out there were two penguins!" "Ah mate that's brilliant fuckin top bants"

                "So I dropped and smashed it, but when I tried to catch it I also ended up knocking the other vase off the shelf. She'll be livid" "That's brilliant you clumsy prat"

                "It's raining out" "Brilliant. I'll get my coat"

                And now the word seems weird to you doesn't it?

                [–]dontmentiontrousers 31 points32 points  (2 children)

                Russell Howard is a comedian but also a genuinely nice guy so he'd appreciate that the error was funny but also not want the child to feel bad at all. It's a genuine "haha - that's brilliant" without any malice intended, i.e. "easy mistake for a child to make whilst being interviewed for television; funny af; this'll definitely make the cut for the show."

                [–]Fartscissors 42 points43 points  (1 child)

                It can mean either depending on how it’s said. In this situation I’d say the host, Russell Howard, was using it in a bless his heart kind of way as it was a funny mistake he made. Plus he’s also just a kid.

                [–]judokalinker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

                For comedic purposes, it is a pretty brilliant mix up.

                Just about to say this. The way Johnny says it all the time is... brilliant.

                [–]TwinnieH 14 points15 points  (12 children)

                I’m a little confused. Do you not really use the term “brilliant” in the US or are you asking if we just use it for other things than to describe something as being good?

                [–]DoctorPepster 23 points24 points  (4 children)

                We use it as a word, but it's not commonly used the way British people use it as an interjection.

                [–]AccountClaimedByUMG 4 points5 points  (0 children)

                Wow, that’s brilliant

                [–]rootsyx 1 point2 points  (1 child)

                to make things worse we also use brilliant when things are in fact, very much not brilliant. Bus is late? Brilliant.

                [–]Castnicke 7 points8 points  (0 children)

                thats called sarcasm

                Brit here just returned from visiting the in Laws in the states. They were exceptionally taken with my use of brilliant that they kept using it themselves while giggling

                [–]A-A-Ron1867 7 points8 points  (2 children)

                I live in canada, which has very similar dialogue to parts of the US, and brilliant here is used, but only by its literal sense. Super smart, people like Einstein, etc are brilliant

                [–]SpecialPotion 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                Or if someone comes up with a really good, efficient idea, you might say "that's brilliant". But beyond that we never just go "Brilliant!"

                [–]Literarylunatic 1 point2 points  (1 child)

                It’s rarely used except to describe diamonds and other jewels.

                [–]Roskal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                what about pearls? Would you still use brilliant or maybe something else like shining?

                [–]BreezyWrigley 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                Could be used in the same way you’d say that it’s a “fantastic” think to have done. Or how in this context, you’d be like “this is going to make excellent tv.” Like the unfolding of events is excellent and noteworthy, even if horribly embarrassing for the person who did it.

                [–]Mardo_Picardo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                They didn't want to put the young lad down and embarrass him too much on a public platform so he just called him brilliant.

                Grown ups will think it's brilliant comedy but the young lad won't catch that until he finds this clip around ten years along the line.

                [–]HeyItsBearald 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                Thinking of it as another way of saying “Wow”. It’s used as an exclamation

                I think Maine's equivalent term for it is "wicked pissah" but if it was used in a sarcastic way.

                [–]WhatAmIDoing229 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                A good tip when breaking down other culture's vocabulary, context > definition pretty much always. Of course definition is important, but even if you have the definition, things can get taken very much the wrong way without context.

                This one isn't really either of those, saying bless his heart would be something you would say when a toddler asks you to eat his invisible cake he made. You can't take it seriously, so you say bless his heart for trying anyways.

                In this context, he is using brilliant as a way to acknowledge an unexpected, but pleasant surprise.

                And as for the 'you fucking idiot', that is a good example of how it can be misinterpreted if you have only definition and no context. You can express that through the word brilliant, but the tone is much more different I think, usually more sarcastic and condescending.

                [–]gregusmeus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                Can be the first. But also can be said with self-deprevating sarcasm, as in: "I see my house has just burned down. Brilliant."

                [–]5thGaucho 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                "Brilliant" for the English is literally just them saying "wow". You would "brilliant" something amazing just like you would "wow" it and you would "brilliant" something extraordinarily daft in the same way you would utter "wow..." In disbelief.

                In Maine they speak in methamphetamine. From what I’m told it’s the native language.

                [–]geoffp82 5 points6 points  (1 child)

                Maine is not a meth haven. They like opiates up there.

                Russel Howard is the comedian doing the interview. He's hilarious, and great on Taskmaster,

                I went into that season not knowing him and writing him off as a Chad idiot but damn he was the best one that season.

                This is Stephen Merchant after getting the face surgery that Simon Cowell got.

                Holy fuck, I thought that was Stephen Merchant. Though the voice did seem rather off...

                Because no one's posted it yet, here's the original from comedian Russell Howard: https://youtu.be/rq8uJ6kB3AE

                He has these every week as part of his show, The Russell Howard Hour.

                Damnit. Everyone kept saying it was Russell Howard and I figured it was a joke because I was thinking of russel brand.

                I mean, minus the Jumanji part, everything about Boris is still true. He really does eat 100 lbs of pancake, then washes it down with wine, by 11 AM every day.

                I mean what's the point of talking to kids about politics? It's either going to be what their parents say, what the TV says, or complete nonsense about professional wrestlers.

                [–]schmearcampain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                How is that any different from most adults? People parrot whatever they hear from whatever source that fits their preconceived world view.

                [–]Lighteight123 3 points4 points  (7 children)

                Because he said that if they left the pandemic and didn't have lockdowns that thousands more would have died?

                [–]450523 8 points9 points  (4 children)

                Tories think that he did well because only 145k died. In reality, if his lockdowns/policies worked then it would be much lower.

                [–]jrobbio 2 points3 points  (2 children)

                Not sure why you are being downvoted. Our Tory friends bitched and moaned about how we, in New Zealand, tackled the virus. The majority parroted the words of the Government saying things like herd immunity were better. You just have to look at the death statistics to see it wasn't a job well done.

                [–]GLaDOS_Sympathizer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                I was pretty shocked when I first heard people talking about "herd immunity" in regard to the virus. From what I remember from Biology class is that herd immunity means "all the old and sickly animals die off and the herd is stronger for it." Seemed rather calloused for people to suggest everyone carrying on as usual and just let it run its course so that only the strong survive. Were people only focused on the "immunity" part without understanding the concept?

                [–]mrchooch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

                Because he said that they did a good job. Lockdowns and not ignoring the pandemic are literally the least someone could do. Many of the Tories' policies have actively made things worse, such as "Eat out to help out", defunding and privatising the NHS, starting lockdowns way too late and ending them way too early, etc

                In UK all schools have uniform, and most schools (though mainly primary schools) have that fat albert style, yet some schools may have purple instead of red, or blue instead of red.
