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.

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.
