A spoof Microsoft training video featuring comedian Ricky Gervais from TV show The Office is climbing up the charts on Google’s video search engine.

Gervais appears in the guise of David Brent, his character from the Office in the 20-minute video, “The Office Values”, that is now at number 33 in Google’s top 100 ratings.

The short films purport to be training video’s for the software giant’s UK employees. “Hello, Microsoft dudes,” Gervais exclaims, before telling all the software giant’s staff they are “part of the family”.

A second video is also available online.
