Ricky Gervais - David Brent Turns Teacher In New Youtube Series

Ricky Gervais' repugnant comedy creation David Brent is heading online to teach YouTube.com users how to play the guitar.

The cringeworthy antics of paper company manager Brent catapulted Gervais to international fame when his hit comedy The Office first aired on the Bbc in 2000.

The show was adapted around the world, with the U.S. version coming to an end later this year (13) after eight years.

Gervais got back into the guise of his alter-ego for Britain's Comic Relief in March (13), and the sketch went down a storm with fans.

Now the funnyman has announced the comedy creation will be resurrected once again for a series of videos on YouTube.com, entitled Learn Guitar with David Brent.

The promos will include songs featured in the original U.K. programme, such as Spaceman Came Down. The series will hit the web in June (13).
