The biggest culprit of this though is Russell Brand.
He uses the most flowery fukking language to communicate pretty simplistic thoughts and this wows the hell out of the audience everytime without fail.
For example he'll talk about aflling in love and add "it is the most amazing and incredibly regular thing" to ever happen. HERP DERP zomg he's using contradicting adjectives i'm about to have a mental-verbal orgasm at this man's incredible complexxxiitttitttyyyyyy! Yeah. Right.
The dude's bright no doubt, witty, insightful, but he's no Beetlegeuse. I get the vibe that a lot of the old actors like James Woods can easily son him but choose to convey themselves in straightforward vernacular.
