Vintage Ricky Gervais!

| Filed under: Music MinuteRicky Gervais

OMG! We almost couldn't believe our eyes! How did we not know about this?

Before he was being scolded by the HFPA and before he put The Office on the map, Ricky Gervais was, WAIT FOR IT…. in an 80s hair band!

Oh yes! He was in a group called Seona Dancing! Tubular name, right?!

Anyway, the band was pretty huge, with their biggest single Bitter Heart making it all the way to #79 on the charts! Impressive!

Okay, we kid. It doesn't look like he could step out from behind David Bowie's shadow (or his closet.) Still, we appreciate the effort and have the music video for their catchy tune so you can see for yourself how totally excellent Ricky was back in the day.

Ch-ch-check out the video (above)!!!

P.S. - That lady's having a rough day, huh?

    He's never denied this. It was even shown on The View when he hosted his first Golden Globes.

    Please tell me why this is such shocking news. Every single talk show that has had him on over the last 5 years has talked about this. Breaking news…well done.

    Perez, do you actually know what Hair Bands were? Like Whitesnake, Def leppard, Bon Jovi etc? This is like New Romantic or something, not hair metal. You should know you're like 11 years older than me and actually remember the 80s!

    Yes.. how did you not know?
    I've seen like.. 10 interviews in the last year with this on it…

    It is funny to see him that young in a new wave band. But it is old news. It has been well known since he first appeared in the UK Office version.

    You are so annoying, ffs. Also THIS IS SUCH OLD NEWS - especially for Brits - I dont like reading "news" when you're YEARS out of date. Thank you.

    Rip off of A-ha much? Is he even singing or being dubbed by someone else? Sounds like every other singer from that era. Oh well, he tried. Did alright for himself eventually.

    What a scoop! Also, this was not a "hair band," but a new romantic/new wave/synth pop band.

  12. 12

    LMAO…I first saw this like 5 years ago! You're so cute Perez thinking you have a top scoop! xx

    Ive been waiting for this video for so long !!! ahahahaha so great !!

  14. 14

    wow…apparently you were the last person on earth to know about this. this has been out there for many, many, many years.

  15. 15

    Gosh, so many trolls sometimes! I hadn't seen it– it's cute.

  16. 16

    I have never seen this.. what a bunch of Debbie Downers.. thanks for posting this Perez! Love it!

    This isn't called a Hair Band. This is called New Wave you moron! A hair band was motley crue, poison, guns n' roses, skid row, etc, etc. For being Mr. Music you sure are a fucking idiot.

  18. 18

    I knew Ricky Gervais did faux folk, but not A Flock of Rickies.
    And lighten up, it's synthpop with big hair.

  19. 19

    LOL! This totally just made my night! I love RG. Hilarious!

    This is funny but Ricky himself laughs at it.Let's face it.If we all went back and looked at photos of ourselves from the 80's,we'd cringe also.

  21. 21

    not a hair band and you have posted this before

  22. 22

    Duh,perez most people already know this.

  23. 23

    everyone knows this…and its quite a good song…

  24. 24

    it's amazing what a difference a little over 25yrs make on a person. & this isn't a hair band…more like new wave-ish.
