VIDEO: Ricky Gervais Revives His ‘Office’ Character on YouTube

David Brent is back.

The character Ricky Gervais made famous through his BBC-turned-NBC hit comedy “The Office” will return to life on YouTube via a series of videos that kick off May 20. The program will be part of YouTube’s weeklong festival.

Gervais, who released a teaser for the series on his YouTube channel Tuesday, revived Brent in the form of a mock tutorial, “Learn Guitar with David Brent.” He’ll play full songs in character like the ones first introduced on the series, including “Spaceman Came Down.”
