Ricky Gervais Crashes ‘House of Cards,’ ‘Orange Is the New Black’ in New Ad

Netflix may have left the Monday night’s Emmy ceremony empty-handed, but the streaming site did manage to fit in some face-time during the show with a new ad featuring Ricky Gervais.

The “Derek” star opens the ad lounging in front of the television, taking in the Netflix fare and musing, “You know when you’re watching your favorite Netflix show and after five straight episodes, you want to be in it?”

The spot takes Gervais into the action on “House of Cards” (complete with a Kevin Spacey impression), “Orange Is the New Black” and “Lilyhammer,” with appearances from members of the three series’ casts.

“Maybe I’m better off just watching,” Gervais decides.

Outtakes from the ad can also be found below.
