Ricky Gervais: "Oh God, Jazz."

Return to search



"Oh God, Jazz." *Sees someone getting head smashed into a piano* "Oh good, not jazz afterall." 

This short scene from the 2016 movie Special Correspondents features Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana (Gervais also wrote and directed the moive).  Special Correspondents was released on April 29, 2016 by Netflix to poor reviews. However, this funny scene has caught the eyes of many jazz musicians and has been widely shared on social media. The scene shows Gervais and Bana approaching the door to a bar. As they get closer they hear what sounds like avant-gard jazz piano coming from inside. Gervais turns to Bana and says "Oh God, Jazz." Once they open the door, though, they realize the avant-gard jazz they thought they heard was actually the sounds of someone getting beatup and having his head stuffed into the piano keyboard. Bana then deadpans, "Oh good, not jazz afterall."
