Noel Gallagher has debuted the video for his single 'AKA…What A Life!', which features a starring role for Russell Brand. You can watch the video by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The video, which is over eight minutes long, begins in a similar setting to the former Oasis man's promo for 'The Death Of You And Me', with the waitress who featured in that video entering a wagon. She then meets Brand, who is dressed in a top hat, leather trousers and a necklace made out of bones. He then force-feeds the terrified girl a magic potion.

Before force-feeding her the potion, he tells her: "Once you've taken a sip of this splendid brew – it smells quite delicious – the world will never look the same again." She refuses, so with the help of his two nieces, he makes her swallow some of the potion.

She then passes out and Brand is seen giving a photo of the waitress to his nieces and telling them to find her. The two girls hijack a car, find the waitress and bundle her into the boot before picking up Noel Gallagher, who is hitchhiking.

Gallagher's debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' will be released on October 17.
