Saturday Night Live tried not go overboard with The Office sketches for host John Krasinski, but the few references that did drop were extremely satisfying.
In one sketch, Krasinski joined SNL cast members in singing invented lyrics to TV theme songs, including The Queen’s Gambit, Bridgerton, and The Mandalorian. (Dear SNL: Please stop trying to make Baby Yoda a thing.)
Just when it seemed like the sketch would end without doing the obvious, Krasinski takes the mic, singing along to the entire Office theme song. He starts off simple (“Scranton, Scranton, Scranton, Scranton, Scranton, Scranton) and goes on to narrate actions in the split screen (“Tie flip!”). At least one audience member yells “Yeah!” at the end, and we feel it in our souls.
The Office is now streaming on Peacock.
