Ricky Gervais, the creator of the original British Office series, recently shot a few hilarious commercials to promote the popular streaming service Netflix as it makes its way to Australia for the first time via Optus.

Gervais does talk about Optus’ special Netflix offer in the region and he also mentions some of the popular shows that are available via the streaming service, including House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Derek. But overall, he’s talking about what seem to be more personal matters to him, like how much money he’s making for shooting these Optus ads.

The five hilarious Optus ads starring Gervais follow below.
