A Supercut Of All Michael Scott's Misquotations Exists And It's Brilliant

A Supercut Of All Michael Scott's Misquotations Exists And It's Brilliant

The Office - the American one, that is - is one of the most popular comedies of recent years, largely built on the back of Steve Carrell's stellar performance in the lead role.

His character, Michael Scott, took the idea from the original series' David Brent and ran with it, turning the bumbling, oblivious, self-satisfied and frequently inarticulate character into a bumbling, oblivious, self-satisfied and frequently inarticulate character for the American audience.

A favourite running jokes is Michael's frequent misquotations and misunderstandings of common phrases - which makes it surprising that it's taken so long for someone to create a supercut video of all of them put together.

But, lo and behold, such a video exists and it's just as funny as you'd expect.

While the show ended in 2013, fans have clamoured for it to return and have occasionally had their hopes raised by executives at the show's studio, NBC.

In April, the Hollywood Reporter wrote that "The Office is another possibility, though likely without the full original cast, and The West Wing also seems to have favorable odds of returning."

AV Club put the question to actor John Krasinski, who plays Jim Halpert in the show, reporting that: "Krasinski thinks NBC should take some inspiration from the original British Office and do a one-off Christmas special that sees what Creed, Kevin, Phyllis, and all of your other favorite characters have been up to since the finale."

While this all seems very fanciful, there has been some movement towards a relaunch of The Office: in the form of a musical parody.

"Are you the world's best boss?" read an advert in Backstage, a website that lists casting opportunities for actors.

"If so, now's your chance to take a walk in Michael Scott's shoes as the lead role in a musical parody of the hit NBC show The Office.

"Male talent, aged 18 and older, is sought for the role.

"Talent must be able to sing and dance. Submissions for the role will close on Aug. 20 and performances begin on Sept. 20 at the Jerry Orbach Theater in New York City. No pay will be provided for the role."
