The pair appeared on morning show "Daybreak" on Friday, November 5 to discuss their new movie, "", but within a minute Gervais arrived onset and jokingly told them he would be sitting in on the chat.

After handing a list of spoof questions to interviewer Kate Garraway, Gervais then tried to coach the pair in how to give amusing answers - but all three ended up in fits of laughter. Gervais told the actors, "As you know, I'm sort of in charge of comedy entertainment in Great Britain, so I've just got to make sure everything goes to plan."

As the interview descended into chaos, Galifianakis said, "To be honest, Ricky emailed me, he knew I was going to be in town and said, 'Look, I really need to get on television again'. This is a kind of last ditch effort to get on top. This is it - it's a sad attempt." Gervais laughed and added: "I have made it on Daybreak!"
