David Brent Microsoft Videos

David Brent goes to Microsoft | MetaFilter:
"Fans of the BBC version of The Office take note: in 2006, Microsoft hired Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant to make a pair of faux training videos for the UK Microsoft headquarters, with Gervais reprising his David Brent role. Both videos are now up on iFilm, and are pretty damn funny (if you're amused by the Brent schtick, which I am)."
Very funny.

    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 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 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.
