Michael Scott's Threat Level Midnight Movie Has Finally Been Released
When Michael Scott announced during an episode of The Office US that he was putting together a spy action film, no one really took it seriously.
Steve Carell's character first revealed Threat Level Midnight in season two but then the whole office was gifted with the full version in the seventh.
Yet people in the real world could only access it if they had the DVD box set of the show, where the 25 minute movie was uploaded as an additional extra.
But the lords at NBC have cut us a break and have put the full movie on YouTube.
In the film, Michael Scott plays as secret agent Michael Scarn who has to go undercover as a hockey player to stop his ultimate enemy Goldenface (played by Jim aka John Krasinski's character on the show).
Goldenface's big plan is to sabotage the NHL All-Star Game, which is a tough mission for Scarn as his wife, Catherine Zeta-Scarn, was killed at the WNBA All-Star Game.
Yeah - it's a lot to take in.
The Office US wrote on YouTube as the movie was uploaded to the site: "After 11 years of preparation, Michael is ready to debut his action movie.
We present to you Threat Level Midnight."
Since its big debut, people have been going absolutely wild for it.

"If this doesn't get nominated for a Dundie Award we gonna have a problem," wrote one person on the video sharing site.
Another added: "This is literally the best Christmas present I could have ever asked for."
A third said: "The directors of Mission: Impossible have been mad quiet after this came out."
Fans were dealt a tough blow earlier this year when it was revealed that NBC was taking the show off from Netflix's hands. All nine seasons of the popular show will be streamed exclusively on NBCUniversal, an upcoming direct-to-consumer platform.
A statement from Netflix US said: "We're sad that NBC has decided to take The Office back for its own streaming platform - but members can binge watch the show to their hearts' content ad-free on Netflix until January 2021."
The now iconic series followed the success of Ricky Gervais' popular UK version, which ended in 2003.
The US show first aired on NBC in 2005, and ran for nine seasons until 2013.
But, if Netflix is the place you choose to watch Jim prank Dwight, Michael vs Toby or even just Kevin being Kevin, you have until the end of 2020 to watch.
