Ricky Gervais – Microsoft 1

Part one of two faux training videos for Microsoft UK employees featuring Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant in their roles from the BBC version of The Office. There is another one as well … visit Google Video to see for yourself!

  1. This is cool as I have been working with a David Brent lookalike, Tim Oliver, and over the last week have noticed my videos on http://www.youtube.com Sky Rocket.
    Until tonight, when a friend mentioned the Microsoft training videos, I could not work out why in the last week I have had over 1500 people download/view one of my videos. I have also now put the videos I did on http://www.cosmic1.com and they have well pushed up my bandwidth.
    It’s all cool and good news for Tim Oliver – David Brent lookalike – although he has been so busy he chooses to avoid calling me to thank me for spending hours editing video just to promote him. Not a ******* word of thanks from him. Boy has he got so into character. He is just like a real life David Brent unfortunately.

  2. You know, the cool thing about your “friend” Tim is that he is a look alike … and relies on his ability to “be” someone else … but that isn’t really talent, it is chance. Now, an ability to capture the “look” of a person and help them tell a story such as you do with your camera work and editing … now that is an authentic skill. And hey, its a skill you will have long after your friends’ “looks” have faded.
    Of course, you know that people are REALLY interested in Ricky Gervais, not someone who sort of looks a bit like him 😉
