Ricky Gervais has posted the first video in a series which revives his classic comedy character David Brent on YouTube.
Brent appears as a guitar tutor who has taken to YouTube with a series called "Learn Guitar With David Brent." Gervais originally played Brent in "The Office," a comedy about life in an office which was exported to dozens of countries worldwide.
The new web-exclusive series is the first opportunity for fans to see Brent in a long-running show since "The Office" ended in 2003, though Gervais has appeared as Brent in cameos for the American version of the program and a sketch for Comic Relief, a televised charity event in the UK.
In this clip, Brent is seen showing the viewer some chords. "You won't use half of them. I will show you the main ones," he says. He goes on to perform his own song "On the Road," a song about travelling around the UK as a sales rep.
