Here we have Nickelodeon teenage dreams Big Time Rush hanging out with Russell Brand, the husband of “Teenage Dream” singer Katy Perry. See what I did there?

At first glance, the angel-faced boy band and the bawdy Brit comedian/actor might not make sense together, but there must be some real affinity between the two since Russell Brand will be appearing in Big Time Rush’s movie special “Big Time Beach Party.” The above photo was taken on the set of the flick.

You can catch “Big Time Beach Party” on Monday, Feb. 21, at 8 p.m. ET on Nickelodeon. And you’ll want to stay tuned to this very blog to watch the premiere of Big Time Rush’s video for “Boyfriend,” featuring Snoop Dogg. Russell Brand, Snoop Dogg, does anyone not like these guys?

By the way, if you were ever wondering what a young Russell Brand looked like as a teenager, a.) you can find it here and b.) your mind will be blown.
