Ricky Gervais given guitar birthday gift
TV star and comedian Ricky Gervais was given a music instrument-themed birthday gift recently in the form of a guitar featured in the film This Is Spinal Tap.
The star of The Office received the extra special gift from his pal Christopher Guest, who starred in the hit mockumentry, for his 50th birthday.
Guest and his actress wife Jamie Lee Curtis handed over the famed music instrument at a meal to celebrate the milestone.
Blogging about his birthday celebrations, Gervais wrote: "But then something quite special happened. Chris gave me his Fender guitar from Spinal Tap. I was speechless. It was really too much.
"What a remarkable gift. I had to have a little lie down in his hotel suite."
The movie which the Fender guitar featured in, This Is Spinal Tap, was released in 1984 and starred Guest alongside Michael McKean and Harry Shearer as three members of the rock group Spinal Tap.
The spoof flick then followed them through their life of fame, poking fun at the wild behaviour and headline-grabbing love lives of people in the music world.
Since starring in the film Guest has gone on to have a career in comedy documentaries. His and Gervais' styles have often been compared.
