John Krasinski has previously used his wholesome YouTube show Some Good News — and his apparently massive list of celebrity pals — to help people graduate, throw a prom, and generally feel some love in this super weird, socially distanced time. Now Episode 7 looks as though it’s reached peak SGN, in what is definitely a highlight for The Office fans.
After hearing from John and Susan, a couple who’d recreated Jim’s gas station proposal IRL, Krasinski promptly got ordained online and hijacked their wedding to do it all on his show. The newlyweds didn’t seem to mind, though. Also joining in video chat were their parents, best friends, freshly minted maid of honor Jenna Fischer, and the entire main cast of The Office.
Recreating the unwanted but iconic wedding dance, the couple were treated to cute home videos of a dancing Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson, Ed Helms, Ellie Kemper, BJ Novak, Brian Baumgartner, Angela Kinsey (with a cat, naturally), Creed Bratton, Kate Flannery, Oscar Martinez (absolutely serving), and Phyllis Smith.
There seems to be no sign of Stanley (Leslie David Baker), who was in the original scene. There’s also no Toby (Paul Lieberstein), presumably because nobody wanted him at either wedding.
I’d like to think that when this is all over, the Lushes will grab two tickets for a Niagara Falls boat trip and have a bonus, Chris Brown-free wedding, just for them.
