Stephen Merchant Weirds Out Chicks In 'Hello Ladies' Trailer

It's like watching my 20's. Based on his standup special of the same name which is based on his terrible success rate when it comes to not scaring off attractive women, The Office co-creator Stephen Merchant is striking out on his own for the new HBO comedy series, Hello Ladies. Here, Merchant plays a character based on himself -- a sweet but gangly human cartoon of a man seeking love and affection or, at the very least, eye contact in Los Angeles. Watch the latest trailer and learn from it. You should always be yourself. But a little better-groomed and not talking about your cat's farts so often.
