David Brent @ Microsoft

If you are a fan of BBC's The Office then you'll like these training videos produced exclusively for Microsoft UK in 2003 which are the hottest property on the 'net right now. Starring Ricky Gervais as the 'ultimate manager' David Brent and Steve Merchant playing it dead-straight as a Microsoft nerd. These videos are the real deal folks and Gervais was furious that they were leaked.

Somehow I fail to see how these would in any way benefit any employee of Microsoft as Brent's sexism, political incorrectness and utter self-absorbtion deflates any kind of message that a 'training video' should instill in the viewer.

They're still up on Google video: Video 1 and Video 2 37 mins in total, but maybe not for long.
