MySingleFriend, the dating site set up by TV property guru Sarah Beeny, has linked with Ricky Gervais’ new film, David Brent, Life on the Road, for a competition challenging people to submit a short video on why they want to date David.

The prize is a year’s supply of gig tickets, which translates as six pairs of tickets of the winner’s choice to a maximum value of £45 per ticket (£540 for 12 tickets).

Competition entries, which must be no more than 25 seconds long, must include why fans think David is a great catch, the man of their dreams, his best chat up lines, why they would make David’s perfect partner and date ideas. If approved by MySingleFriend, they will be featured on the website and the winner will be chosen by public vote, according to the number of ‘Likes’ it gets on the MySingleFriend site.

David Brent, Life on the Road is the big screen debut for David Brent, the character Gervais created for BBC television comedy series ‘The Office’, which catapulted him to fame. The film catches up with Brent 12 years on from the BBC mockumentary to find he is now a travelling salesman with Lavichem, a cleaning and ladies personal hygiene products company.

However, he hasn’t given up on his dream of rock stardom and is about to embark on a self-financed tour with his band and a film crew that shadows Brent as he travels up and down the country living his dream of being a rock star with his band the ‘Foregone Conclusion’.

Despite David’s new career as a rock star, he is still single, striking out with the ladies regardless of his first class banter, cheesy chat up lines and love inspiring rock ballads.
