Creepy New Trailer Reimagines The Office In The Style of Netflix' You

Even though The Office (US) has been off the air since 2013, to this day it remains one of the most re-watched sitcoms in recent memory, gaining cult status and cultivating a huge audience after becoming a big hit on Netflix.


And in a brilliant new edit uploaded by the show's official Youtube channel this week, the beloved sitcom pays homage to fellow Netflix giant You by releasing an incredible new trailer for the show that reimagines Dwight Schrute as You's disturbed protagonist, Joe Goldberg.

"He's just the nice boy next door." The description reads.

"From the completely different mind of the makers of You on Netflix, comes an identical rip-off based in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Starring Dwight Schrute as Joe Goldberg, the hard-working salesman determined to get what he DESERVES: the heart of his innocent, gentle colleague Angela."

In what can only be called a masterpiece of editing, the two minute clip reimagines Dwight as a deranged loner and recasts his relationship with Angela as a dangerous obsession similar to the one Greg Berlanti's character develops in You, splicing together shots of him lurking behind her whilst twisting some of his more famous lines into something more... sinister.

The whole thing needs to be seen to be believed, but fans who checked out the clip were blown away by the quality and gave a shout out to the editors for producing such a genre-bending clip.

"The marketing/social media department for this is amazing!" One user claimed. "The Office ended in 2013, more than 8 years ago and yet this feels fresh, new, and nostalgic at the same time. Well done!"

Others agreed and noted the eerie similarities between Dwight and Joe's dialogue, with another person noting that "This edit literally changed the whole freaking tone of the dialogue - -we wasted too much of our lives ignoring the fact that we belong together' - total YOU vibes! "

"This is amazing! The ability to take a storyline and make a completely different one is a sign of true skill. Good job whoever runs this channel" said a third.

Season three of You dropped on Netflix in October after returning from a two-year break to rave reviews, with fans and critics claiming the latest season to be the best one yet.

The show has since been confirmed for a fourth season, with filming expected to start up again next year.
