Ricky Gervais told his fans to #TextLikeBrent and the results are hilarious

Let's all pretend to be the boss from The Office


Most people try to avoid sounding like David Brent, the cripplingly, catastrophically awkward boss from The Office. But that’s exactly what Ricky Gervais has asked his fans to do.


Gervais does this sometimes when he’s bored. The results, as you can imagine, are hilarious.

Sometimes they’re inspiring.

Sometimes they’re romantic.

Sometimes it gets a bit dangerous.

And sometimes they’re in Spanish.


Join in! After all, we can’t all be David Brent, but we can all #textlikebrent.
