Video: Ricky Gervais’ 80s Pop Music Past
He might be getting a lot of slack for his offensive comments towards Hollywood celebs as the host of the Golden Globes earlier this month, but now comedian/actor Ricky Gervais might be the butt of some jokes after a long-lost music video of his band surfaced.
Before becoming a huge star and making people laugh, Gervais was pursuing a music career as a singer for an 80s new wave duo Seona Dancing. Check out the lost footage of a handsome, young Gervais milking it up to the camera as a sultry Bill Idol-esque pop singer in “Bitter Heart.”
The duo Seona Dancing was signed to London Records and released two singles “More to Lose” and “Bitter Heart,” which is seen below. The single only made it to No. 70 on the British charts and the duo eventually broke up, but I think Gervais is doing just fine as a comedian now.
