Weirdest news of the week. U.K. comedian Ricky Gervais has announced Learn Guitar With David Brent, a new series of YouTube tutorials featuring his most famous creation in comedy show The Office.
Slough’s most over-confident songsmith and most-irritating boss will assume the role of teacher in the videos, where he will show beginners how to play Brent originals that originally appeared in The Office.
Songs currently confirmed include “Spaceman Came Down” and “Equality Street.” It’s as yet unconfirmed whether 2004’s “Free Love Freeway,” which was recorded with Noel Gallagher and included on the Christmas Special DVD of The Office, gets the full Brent tutorial treatment.
The series is planned to premier on the Ricky Gervais YouTube channel in June, with one new episode/lesson per month.
