The execrable American version finally exposed to British derision, 10th April.
Half-page advert in today's Times's cultural supplement, TheKnowledge, announcing
"The US version of the UK classic on DVD
"It's brilliant" - Ricky Gervais
Then, on the next line, as if Gervais did NOT go on to say it, but we're meant to think he did:
"Different ... but brilliant. Fact."
Across the page, slightly hinting at the truth: "If you thought Brent was bad (sic) wait until you meet Stott".
I suppose the mendacious Gervais comment was because they had him by the short and contractuals and he had to go along with whatever punctuation-lite tripe the marketing boys came up with.
