David Brent visits Microsoft

still from Ricky Gervais Microsoft UK video

If you're like many web-savvy people, you loathe Microsoft but love Ricky Gervais in The Office. If that's you, then prepare for a lumbering bus full o' conflicting emotions as you watch these hilarious videos commissioned by Microsoft UK. Gervais (in his brilliant role as David Brent, the world's worst business executive) visits Microsoft UK to help the company work on their core values. The Office's co-writer/co-director Stephen Merchant is wonderful as the increasingly frustrated Microsoft drone assigned to shepard Brent around. Enjoy!

(Thanks bedazzled)
