Was This Scene From ‘The Office’ Inspired by a Jay Whatley Facebook Video?
I was binge-watching The Office last night when a scene came up that looked peculiarly familiar.
Anyone who knows me knows I love The Office... I mean, I really, really love it. Somehow, though, after at least 7 full-series watch-throughs, I've completely missed this important scene.
The scene in question comes in at episode ten during the 8th season. In the scene, Dwight Schrute pulls out an old school boombox and declares, "THIS IS CHRISTMAS". What followed was a song done by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and featured Dwight, along side other co-workers (or subordinates), passionately playing air instruments with the song in the background.
The scene was hilarious.... But.... Maybe it was even more hilarious when my friends and I did the exact same thing back in 2009.
So, did the creators of The Office somehow stumble across my Facebook for inspiration? If so, I fully expect to be compensated... Or at least receive a free Dunder Mifflin t-shirt.
