UK News: David Brent to Train Microsoft

"Im a monopolist first, geek second... probably an entertainer third..."

Wernham Hoggs managerial genius that is David Brent has been employed by Microsoft to train its staff in personal development. Although the characters creator Ricky Gervais has previously shunned such work, it appears the opportunity to work with Microsoft was too much to turn down and the comedy star has put together a video entitled Im back - and this time its personal development.

A spokeswoman for Microsoft told the BBC: "We cant provide information about Ricky Gervais" project at Microsoft. It is an internal thing and not something which we like to publicise. It is something we do for staff and staff only."

Anybody who witnessed David Brents truly awful dance routine in series two, episode five, here, and has also seen Steve Ballmers crowd pleasing repertoire of the grotesque, here, may find it difficult to choose between the two men, but we believe Brent has the edge... just.

A massive TIA to the first to get hold of a d/l of the training sesh!
