As a Brit, Russell Brand was feeling a bit left out of all the Fourth of July hoopla so he decided to celebrate America's independence in his own, inimitable -- and illegal -- way.

On "BrandX with Russell Brand" (Thu., 11 p.m. ET on FX), Brand decided that the only way to celebrate America's special day was to burn a dollar bill.

So, with the aid of a volunteer from the audience, he set fire to one. (Don't try this at home, kids.)

"Aw, I love it! I love fire. Don’t you, mate?" he laughed. "Looks so nice just burning away. ... Yes! Take that society!"

Then, to prove he's not anti-American, Brand tried to set fire to a British pound coin. Funnily enough, that proved to be far less dramatic.

Catch more japery on "BrandX with Russell Brand," Thursdays at 11 p.m. ET on FX.
