Film: Ricky Gervais presents Learn Guitar with David Brent. Need we say more?

“The station’s got a new floor, and the motorway runs by the door…and you know just where you’re headin’, it’s equidistant between London and Reading.” Yep, that’s right, The Office’s David Brent is BACK and he’s giving us guitar lessons. The best thing about this series (apart from hanging out with David Brent again) is its simplicity. David sits against a black backdrop, plays guitar and chats to the audience about, well, his general arrogant bullshit. It just goes to show that you don’t need a million quid and 400 PR people to make a seriously successful series of short, internet-based videos.
