YouTube Comedy Week: Ricky Gervais' David Brent gives guitar lesson

Posted on

David Brent

Your dream of having David Brent teach you guitar is finally coming true.

After Ricky Gervais announced last week that his Office character would be returning to YouTube, fans may have rushed out to buy a guitar. Unfortunately, as he alluded to last time, David Brent isn’t so much “teaching” viewers guitar as telling them all about it. “I’m not going to teach you… YOU’RE going to teach you,” he explains and then goes on to decline to teach chord progressions or hand movements.

But all hope is not lost. Viewers do get to hear a full version of “Life on the Road,” Brent’s first single. A viral video star in the making à la Andy Bernard? You be the judge. Check out “Learn Guitar With David Brent” below:

Your move, Michael Scott.
