Thank you so much for making Learn English with Ricky Gervais the number 1 podcast in the world. It was downloaded over a million times in the first 24 hours. Fucking incredible.
And thank you to iTunes for such a wonderful launch. Brilliant job. But most of all, thank you for the most amazing reaction I’ve ever had.
iTunes have it exclusively for one week then we will post a clean version on YouTube so that people around the world can rip it, stick on their own language subtitles, and then re-post it.
When we have had 50 million views, we’ll record a brand new one and start the whole process again. Deal?
The first few days filming on Derek have been the most fun I’ve ever had. Best line of the shoot so far is either Kev at a funeral saying, “This is a muff-free zone” or Dougie saying, “I’m jealous of the dead.” Haha.
