The Eegahffice

On last night’s The Office, apparently there was a little somethin’-somethin’ that, in all likelihood, was a reference to our dear old MST3K. Can you find Waldo? Give it a look:

In case the video gets torn down by the NBC/YouTube gremlins, I’ll spell it out for you: While getting off the bus at the beach, Steve Carell‘s Michael Scott randomly advises his employees to, “Watch out for snakes!” a la Eegah. The manner in which it’s done, and the fact that Carell’s character in The 40-Year-Old Virgin had an MST3K: The Movie poster, and the fact that another Office cast member mentioned MST3K in a DVD commentary… well, my money is on its being intentional.

  1. While I pefer the UK version Office, that’s pretty cool. I wonder out of the many people who watched it, notice that.

  2. I think the UK version is more clever and more painfully realistic, but I think the US Office is a rather excellent adaptation. It has its own charm, let’s say. It’s won me over.

  3. What would have made it more realistic would have been to have the voice done by someone totally different (and in a studio!)

    p.s. Thanks for using my clip!

  4. Not a problem. Thank YOU for uploading the clip.
