Stick to The Office day job Andrew – please!

THE history of businesspeople and music-making shows it's often best to stick to one or the other.

Although fictional, The Office's David Brent is probably like most businesspeople in fatally embarrassing himself when having a go at singing.

But Andrew Mason, the founder of discount website Groupon who was ousted from the business earlier this year, is hoping he can buck Brent's trend after releasing Hardly Workin', a collection of "motivational business music" on Spotify. Among his faux-pas were turning down billion-dollar offers for his voucher business from Google and Yahoo.

Now he's decided to spend his down time in the studio – but anyone who's heard the fruits of his efforts will be hoping he'll create another business soon.
