Video Killed The Radio Star: David Brent – If You Don’t Know Me By Now


If you don’t know David Brent by now, you will never, never know him.

So, then, the story behind this one goes like this: Sacked Slough paper company boss David Brent decided to use his redundancy money to fund a long-dreamed-of bid for chart glory. In his youth, you see, he had been part of a band called Foregone Conclusion. Despite claiming that they had toured extensively – and that their support act had been a then unknown Scottish band called Texas – Foregone Conclusion disappeared and were forgotten.

Now middle-aged, Brent recorded a version of schmaltzy classic If You Don’t Know Me By Now, releasing it on his own Juxtaposition Records label, and had a video shot. Not surprisingly, the single flopped, his career fizzled out and he was last seen working as a cleaning products salesman.

    I’ll tell you where I’m at.

    Your not very good, and the white outfit makes you look like a twat…I’m not going to invest in you; so I’m out.

  2. I see what you did there. I thought something similar when I saw the location where the video was filmed, back when The Office Christmas specials first aired.
