Ricky Gervais has gotten back in character as David Brent from "The Office" for "The Office Revisited," a 10-minute video Gervais made for Comic Relief that was broadcast on BBC One in the U.K. tonight before being put online on Gervais' YouTube channel.

Brent is as smarmy and unself-aware as ever as he fills the camera crew in on what he's been up to in the decade since the original "The Office" aired. Brent's come up with a new way of pursuing fame that fits in with the great "where are they now" tradition of reunion specials. Gervais, on the other hand, has a new show called "Derek" that will have its U.S. premiere on Netflix later this year.
