Airing during NBC’s coverage of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, the two short promotional videos show off Gervais in a black tuxedo as he speaks to the camera about hosting the show once again.
Looking dapper in one video, an off-screen voice tells Gervais to “Just say the lines and pour yourself a drink.”
Just as Gervais was about to pour himself a little bit of the bubbly, the comedian looked to the camera and stoically stated, “Hi, I’m Ricky Gervais and I’m hosting the Golden Globes" — before popping the cork and letting the drink spray all over the set.
“Watch out for the camera!” the off-screen voice lamented.
In the other video, Gervais takes a more laid-back stance, but still takes the time to poke fun at hosting the awards show.
“Happy holidays, America. I’m Ricky Gervais and I’m hosting the Golden Globe awards, so there’s your early gift,” he said.
“Is it just what you wanted?” Gervais asked with a sly chuckle.
“No, it’s not, is it?” Gervais asked again as he burst into laughter.
Gervais previously hosted the show in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2016.
