    I love how he doesn't even attempt to teach guitar, just forces people to listen to his songs.

    Even though it's a piss take, it's actually still a better song than most of what's in the charts. Well done David Brent!

      haha my gf was just in the background and was "aah that sounds lovely" which made me piss myself even more

    the lyric 'tease my dog so he doesn't even know it, by goin to throw a bone but just pretending to throw it' is quite possibly the best lyric in the history of rap music

    A comedy song only works if it's a genuinely good song. This definitely worked.

      This is a vile song, it’s just funny. What are you smoking to think this is a good song?

    Even though it’s an act about how David Brent is an idiot, you can’t look past Ricky Gervais’s talent. He’s got it going on!!

    Too damn good.
    I"d have thought by now we'd all be bored with David Brent, but he is a gift that just keeps on giving and making us cringe - and enjoy cringing - time after time.
    How they keep a straight face, I have no idea. Many takes I guess.

    Very funny. From Brent's "cultural" accent to the rap. I wonder how many takes that took?

  • therealchrismarsh
    therealchrismarsh 8 years ago

    Yes, easily the best one so far. Some genuine Brent corkers in terms of comments and facial expressions. "I would love to have a dwarf in a wheelchair as a mate. I've said that before."

    Even though it's called "Learn guitar with David Brent", he doesn't even teach you how to play this one. True Brent style, everything he does becomes about him rather than what it originally was. Classic.
