Remember when we talked about Ricky Gervais landing a cameo on "The Office"?
Well, that moment arrived last night as David Brent — Gervais' character in the original, U.K. edition of "The Office" — appeared alongside Steve Carell's Michael Scott.
In the episode, Brent is seen exiting an elevator and bumping into Scott. "Sorry, mate," he tells Scott, who then mimics Brent's English accent.
An amused Brent asks if Scott is making fun of him, and Scott replies, "I'm not picking on you at all. You're English, correct? I'm working on an English character. Would you mind — it's called Reginald Poofta."
The men laugh and Brent informs Scott that he also does impressions, and proceeds to do a politically incorrect impersonation of a Chinese man, with Scott joining in. Brent explained, "Comedy is where the mind goes to tickle itself," before starting another round of guffaws with, "that's what she said."
Wrapping things up with a hug, they begin to go their separate ways when Brent suddenly asks, "Where are you working?" Scott tells Brent he's employed at Dunder Mifflin, and Brent asks if there are any job openings.
"No," says Scott. "Not right now." (Scott's portrayer Carell, of course, is exiting the show this season.)
"Just let me know," says Brent.
What did you think of Gervais' cameo?
