Ricky Gervais was in an '80s pop band
Before you ask the obvious question: YES, that's really British comedian Ricky Gervais, fronting his '80s pop-synth band, Seona Dancing.
It's hard to get beyond the obvious Depeche Mode feeling to the video and really study his face, but that's Gervais circa 1984. Sure, he's obviously still a few helpings of bangers and mash short of his look today, but wow, the guy could sing!
Seona Dancing even has a really nice fan site on the Web. Click here to check it out. According to the fan site, the band was formed in 1982 by Gervais and Bill Macrae. Their best-known single, More to Lose, was released in 1983, but it wasn't exactly a chart-climber. The band called it quits in '84.
