Tweeting a picture of himself dressed as Hitler is kinda bad, but at least Ricky Gervais didn’t go ahead with his original plan to come onstage at the Golden Globes dressed as Hitler.
“I was going to get to the podium, let it die down – then go, ‘Too much?’ Then I wanted to look in the crowd and go, ‘It’s the wrong crowd, just the wrong crowd’. Then I was going to say, ‘That’s the last time I borrow a suit from Mel Gibson.’ That would’ve been good, wouldn’t it?”
Nope. It wouldn’t’ve. That would not have been good, at all. Looks like we need to start writing a multicamera sitcom about a lovable buffoon who values “pushing the envelope” above all else. Its main credits image would be a picture of Ricky Gervais lying on his stomach, propped up on his elbows, hands under his chin, looking impish, and the chyron “Ricky!” in bubble letters. The catchphrase would be: “Oh, Ricky!” Or maybe just “Ricky!” I haven’t decided yet.
