Comedian Ricky Gervais, co-creator of \"The Office\" was originally a pop musician.

We know him for creating \"The Office\", but back when he was a student in the 80\'s, his career was in a completely different direction. From 1982 to 1984, Gervais was in a pop duo called \"Seona Dancing\". They released two singles in their career: \"More to Lose\" and \"Bitter Heart\". They both failed to break the top 40. However, \"More to Lose\" became a bit of a surprise hit in the Philippines after the band already broke up.
