    He’s refreshingly laid back for a man with such responsibility

    I'm crying at just a quick nod of the head....or the awkward smile....all the little mannerisms....he doesn't even have to speak......genius.

    I like how he says the "2nd verse will answer everything" but then it left us with more questions than answers.

    The Third Verse
    The spaceman then pondered and looked and then stared, thinking of humans and war and despair , he answered his questions and dwelled on his thoughts started his spaceship and ended this pause.Who is wrong who is right , war has raged in to the night ,I’ve showed you your wrongs I’ve showed you rights this spaceship has left into the light

      Fourth Verse
      The people then wondered where that spaceman went, he showed us so much he was heaven-sent, what will we do now that he's left our side, we've nothing to do but lay down and die, then a child was born one day, he stood up with something to say, the spaceman he said you no longer need, his magic's still here it's inside of me

    It's brilliant David. You are saving the whole world. First time I've laughed out loud for ages. All the way through.

    Love it so much, it's the little things. That pose when he asks about his influences is so perfect, every amateur musician has an answer prepared for that and desperately wants to be asked it with a camera pointed at them, can't believe his luck.

    I love how the second verse adds even more questions, clarifies nothing and at first you think "oh quite clever, he's referring to christ and his teachings...oh nevermind"
    Ricky Gervais is a master of comedy.

    Love this in the Office. The second verse capped it off beautifully. This song reminds me of Peter Starstedt - Where Do You Go To My Lovely?

    Very relaxing, actually! The song reminds me of 'The Free Life' by Alan Parker, which was used as the theme for two 70s programmes on ITV, Moody and Peg and My World.

    Ricky is such an underrated actor, gets so deep into his characters. He can't even play the guitar but when the camera turns on and he's playing David Brent he suddenly knows exactly what to do. Amazing.

    David Brent, how did you become so brilliant and multi-talented?

  • Narcissist Free -almost

    Love it!

  • Gross English Titty Vampire

    To me it's more like an evolved version of David Brent, like how he would become as he gets older and when he no longer has the office and he's desperate for attention and validation. I like it.
