Ricky Gervais unveils new comedy folk music video

Ricky Gervais sings Lady Gypsy from David Brent: Life on the Road

In David Brent: Life on the Road, set to hit U.K. theaters in August, Gervais returns as the failed middle-manager whose somewhat delusional rock star aspirations take him on a concert tour of the U.K.
