David Brent Singing ‘Lady Gypsy’ Is the Closest You’re Gonna Get to Seeing Ricky Gervais Have Sex in the Woods

The Office’s David Brent was consistently so awkward you wanted to cover your face in ash and live out your days as a hermit in the woods, so it makes sense his first video from the upcoming David Brent: Life on the Road would do the same. As part of his new life as a touring musician, Ricky Gervais’s character straps on a little neckerchief and channels his inner folk balladeer for the romantic story-song “Lady Gypsy.” The effect is the sonic equivalent of squatting roughly with a tree trunk between your legs. Oh God, and his pants. The pants.
