Ricky Gervais' David Brent takes inspiration from Winston Churchill and Gandhi when playing guitar -- VIDEO

Ricky Gervais is back ”teaching” guitar as his The Office character David Brent. In this episode he answers fan — “pupil”– questions. Fans want to know if he’s single, who inspires him, and ¬†what he values more: his artistry or his philanthropy.

“If I can help anyone whilst entertaining them or if I can make money from this and give a small percentage of that away then yeah good,” Brent responds to the artistry vs. philanthropy question.

At the end he sings a song called “Spaceman Came Down” in its entirety. Check out ”Learn Guitar with David Brent” below:


Ricky Gervais on 'Learn Guitar With David Brent': Write about what you DON'T know -- VIDEO

David Brent has really done well for himself since being made redundant at Wernham Hogg back in 2002. He’s got a fulfilling day job (selling cleaning products!) and a promising night job (acting as the “local Simon Cowell” for an aspiring musician), he’s had a chance to visit the U.S.… and he’s even moonlighting as a guitar teacher on YouTube. Yep, there’s no reason to feel sorry for good ol’ David Brent. None at all.

In this second episode of “Learn Guitar with David Brent,” the teacher breezes past boring instruction to deliver words of wisdom — “Dreams. Dreams are real. Dreams are realer than reality, in a way, because reality changes! Dreams do as well, but…” — and play a song about selling his (nonexistent) shack in Memphis and heading down to Mexico (on a trip he hasn’t actually taken).
