Ricky Gervais had no problem tearing apart Hollywood heavyweights at the Golden Globes, but a recently unearthed music video has given Tinseltown some leverage for getting back at the funny man.

In 1982 during his senior year at university in England, Gervais and friend Bill Macrae formed a new wave synth-pop duo called Seona Dancing. So before Gervais was insulting movie stars and honing his comedic chops, he was quite seriously pursuing a career as a sex symbol and Billy-Idol-style singer.

Seona Dancing went on to be signed to London Records and released two singles: 'More to Lose' and 'Bitter Heart.'

Check out the video for 'Bitter Heart' below.

While 'Bitter Heart' only reached No. 70 on the British charts, it climbed to the top of the Filipino charts a year after its release. Sadly for Gervais, the DJ who started the trend played the song without identifying the group's name, so 'Seona Dancing' didn't get to bask in the glory of fame quite yet.

Those burned by Gervais at the Golden Globes can laugh that the smug host has some embarrassing skeletons in his closet. Gervais told David Letterman in 2008 that he was, at the time of the video above, "too handsome" to get laughs, and that getting fat helped him find success as a comedian.
