Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

The most recent episode of “The Office” was amusing as always, though not a standout for the series. What did stand out, however, was the hilarious gag in the opening teaser where Jim decides he’s going to play the part of Dwight.

It was almost as funny as that off-screen gag Jim told the camera about, where he filled Dwight’s phone handset with nickels.

NBC posted the video on YouTube, which is a progressive move of marketing on their part as opposed to Viacom’s (“VIACOM“; E and T will get the reference) recent decision to sue Google/YouTube for $1 billion for copyright infringement.

I have to admit, having watched the BBC version before NBC redid it, I was very snobby towards this show at first, but it’s growing on me (doesn’t hurt that I’ve got family in Scranton and the last time we all went up there together, my parents were pointing out all the stuff seen on the show “Why isn’t that pink church in the show intro?” etc.)

God knows, if I lived in Scranton, I’d shoot myself.

Ha! I’m glad I’m not the only one who laughed at the nickel-phone gag. Even thinking about it now gives me giggle-fits.
