For anyone who has watched The Office, particularly the British version, it’s no secret that the movies of Christopher Guest, and especially This is Spinal Tap were a huge influence. I mean, let’s be real, Guest basically invented the concept of a Mockumentary, so obviously that’s true.

Enjoy this 6 part interview series where Ricky Gervais, co-creator and star of The Office and Extras, interviews Christopher Guest, creator and star of, not only Spinal Tap, but Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration.
