One of the greatest characters in recent TV history is Ricky Gervais' The Office horrible boss David Brent. He's selfish, idiotic, and an all around jerk. In other words, just what you want from a cartoonishly awful boss. Unlike his American counterpart Michael Scott, David Brent has no redeeming qualities. He is what he is, although in his mind he is a great artist hidden in the body of a paunchy paper company manager. In his new movie, David Brent: Life on the Road, Brent goes on tour with his horrible band singing his truly terrible songs. The first video for the movie, Lady Gypsy, is a truly remarkable piece of video art. It tells the story of a young David Brent in renn faire style clothing and a neckerchief seducing a gypsy girl in Stevie Nicks style costume.
He thinks he is sexy. He is wrong, oh so wrong.
