The Office creator and UK comedy legend Ricky Gervais stopped by First We Feast’s Hot Ones to eat absurdly hot hot wings (vegan this time) and talk about his new project, Netflix’s David Brent: Life on the Road. “This is like a cross between Charlie Rose and fucking Jackass,” Gervais says at the video’s start.
Gervais handles the spice pretty well at first, managing to talk about life on the road and his most iconic character without showing signs of obvious pain. But about 14 minutes in, he has a vegan wing that does him in. “That’s really hot, that’s really hot man,” he says. “I can’t do the last two sauches….[screams while rubbing his tongue with a napkin]…that’s really hot.”

Luckily, the interview goes on and Gervais weighs in on his favorite cheeses (“The Stilton is the greatest of all the cheeses I think”) and talks about the times he met Jay Z.
Later he accuses host Sean Evans of being addicted to hot wings. “You’re basically a heroin addict,” he says. “That’s why you’re dressed like you’re in Trainspotting.”
