Uncanny Resemblance Between Ricky Gervais' David Brent and UK Daytime TV Salesman

We all know someone who's a little bit like David Brent. 

Perhaps a previous boss stuck in middle-management?

Brent is the type of boss who wants to be a friend and mentor to those who work for him.

He imagines his workers find him extremely funny and enjoy his company, while still respecting him and looking up to him as a boss, even a fatherly figure.

However, his employees generally find him pretentious, arrogant and mean.

That's why we laugh, because we all know someone who acts like this from time to time!

But, never have I ever seen someone who was so uncanny in both physical resemblance and their idiosyncrasies. 

Behold... the real David Brent?

Twitter has been abuzz with discussion, many not believing their eyes. 

Incredible. Simply incredible. I wonder what Ricky Gervais would say if he saw this travelling TV salesman. 

Just in case you've forgotten what David Brent is like... well... I'm just going to leave this here...
