Ricky Gervais Might Make a David Brent Album


After filming a series of popular YouTube videos reprising his character David Brent from The Office under the name “Learn Guitar with David Brent,” Ricky Gervais has been receiving offers to release a music album. Gervais, who was a part of the failed new wave pop duo Seona Dancing in the early ‘80s, said, “I can’t believe I’m getting ridiculous offers from major record companies all over the world for a David Brent album. Where were these people when I was trying to be a real popstar?” He added, “It’s been so much fun bringing back David Brent and have him philosophise on YouTube and spend all his hard-earned repping money on still trying to become a popstar. It’s funny and sadly true of today’s X Factor culture.” Whether Gervais actually takes one of these “ridiculous offers” remains to be seen, but it would be nice to finally have a studio version of “Free Love Freeway.”
