    The fact that he turns down the request to play the crippled song shows his genius. He's not trying to get some low-brow cheap laughs from a song like that in this moment. Slough is way better anyway.

    He fused Flashdance with MC Hammer shit .

    Maybe everything Ricky has done with his career has been to make him an accepted singer / songwriter.

    Sad true is that even though he's just doing it for fun or to make fun, he still sounds better than many other singers with autotune

    In the '80s he had a very low-pitched modulated voice ala Depeche Mode. Seona Dancing was a huge band.

    Ricky is the kind of musician who is really embarrassed at first, but as soon as he gets into his jam, everyone else fades away and he's lost in the tune.

    He means it though. It's true. That's why it works. Well done, son. I'm from Phoenix, AZ which is equally non-descript and made fun of by all, but it means everything to me.

    Love how the guy to his right says, “Anybody listening is gonna be like, ive heard this ricky gervais guy is supposed to be funny, but this song is terrible.” Then Ricky looks at him and quickly holds back his offence to that statement. & then plays a really nice version of the tune. Like “hows that then” 🖕😂
