See David Bowie’s Classy Chubby Little Fat Man Ode To Ricky Gervais

Every day, we bring you the best thing we've seen on YouTube - a great piece of archive footage, a music promo or a clip from one of our favourite movies or TV shows.

Today: See David Bowie’s hilarious cameo appearance in hit BBC comedy Extras.

Bowie improvs a hilarious song inspired by Ricky Gervais’ Extras character Andy, with the lyrics running something like:

“Little fat man who sold his soul, little fat man who sold his dream, chubby little loser...Chubby little loser. National joke...

Pathetic little fat man, no one's bloody laughing, the clown that no one laughs at, they all just wish he'd die.
He's so depressed at being useless, the fatman takes his own life.”

Bowie appeared in Extra: Season 2, and other brilliant cameos in the acclaimed series include Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Hollywood actors Ben Stiller and Samuel Jackson.

Extras: Season 2 is available to buy on DVD from March 26.
