In honor of David Bowie, here he is mercilessly mocking Ricky Gervais. In song, of course.

As you may have heard, David Bowie passed away last night. At least there are a million ways to remember him—as an artist, a musician, an actor—but this scene from Ricky GervaisExtras reminds us that he was also really funny. Bowie is playing himself: a self that is always ready to be inspired by what's around him and who is the center of every party. He also destroys Gervais' character, who is essentially a parody of Ricky Gervais. It's perfect.

Ricky Gervais hosted the Golden Globes last night, but this is what is posted on his Facebook page this morning:

I just lost a hero. RIP David Bowie.

Here are the lyrics is you want to sing-a-long to the Gervais trashing after you've finished the rest of the Bowie catalog:

Little fat man who sold his soul
Little fat man who sold his dream

Pathetic little fat man
No one's bloody laughing
The clown that no one laughs at
They all just wish he'd die

He's so depressed at being hated
Fatso takes his own life
He blows his stupid brains out
But the twat would probably miss

He sold his soul for a shot at fame
Catchphrase and wigs and the jokes are lame
He's got no style, he's got no grace
He's banal and facile, he's a fat waste of space

See his pug-nosed face
Pug, pug, pug, pug
