It’s been nearly ten years since the British version of The Office aired, but Ricky Gervais’s David Brent is still on track to live fast and die old. In May, Gervais-as-Brent began teaching guitar lessons on YouTube, a series that produced the single “Slough,” an ode to the post-industrial wasteland where he was born. Toro Y Moi recently released his chillwave version of the song with the note, “Dear Ricky, Hope you like this cover.” It won’t be the first time an American has covered a Gervais original.
