I love Ricky Gervais. No, I don’t want to shag him, I just think he is a brilliant talent who has a unique, self effacing, piss and vinegar slant on comedy. Just compare his original UK version of “The Office” with the US version. Still, he made a shitload of money, flogging it to the Colonials. (Ha, standing by for the slagging.) Anyway, I’m sure by now you’ve seen his Oz spots for their version of Netflix. The ones he did for a “shedload of cash,” and when the brand complained, he replied… “You’ve paid me, I’ve spent it.” Fucking brilliant. And hats off to the Oz client for going with it. It wouldn't happen in the US, not that a US agency would have the balls to present it in the first place.
Howard nailed it!
