APRIL 11 UPDATE FROM ORGANIZERS: “In light of the events now happening on May 4, we have decided to cancel our tribute video originally scheduled for May 5.”
In honor of The Office, TV station WBRE is organizing a lip dub extravaganza to be filmed on the streets of Scranton on Sunday, May 5.
Not only do they need Office superfans to perform in front of the camera, they would also like to feature an original send-off song! (I’m talking to you, creators of Pam Pong, The Office Tribute Song, and Ryan Started The Fire.)
Organizers tell OfficeTally “The video will be posted to YouTube during the final episode, and will likely air on both the NBC and CBS affiliates here in town at about 7:55p on the finale night. It will also be covered locally on Eyewitness News.”

No, I’m not talking about Jim and Pam. :)
In many ways, “The Office” helped bring Kevin and Susan Stempien together. So, when time came for them to join together in holy matrimony, they decided the Scranton-based NBC sitcom should be a part of the festivities, tradition be damned.
And boy, did they make sure that every detail was just right!
Read the full story in the Scranton Times-Tribune:
Scranton couple ties knot with themed wedding & reception
And check out some of the photos that Susan sent to OfficeTally below!
(Best. Wedding favors. Ever.)
Congratulations you two! May your hearts soar forever with the eagle’s nest. :)

The Office’s Andy Buckley (‘David Wallace’) visits Scranton this weekend.
He’ll be attending a “Raising the Roof!” happy hour on Friday, kicking off The Office Fan Tours on Saturday, and maybe even hanging out at the Pocono Raceway with Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (he’s apparently quite the Office fan) on Sunday.
Quite the busy itinerary!
The Office Fan Tours are scheduled every Saturday throughout the summer and showcase landmarks made famous by ‘The Office':
Four-hour tour that begins at the Mall at Steamtown and ends at Poor Richards Pub. Includes full lunch at Cooper’s w/ beet salad, crab bisque and more. Local brews and wine included with 21+ ticket, however keep in mind this is a clean, fun family tour. Tour includes recognizable places and inspirations such as Farley’s, The Bog, Paper Magic, Cooper’s, Penn Paper building, Alfredo’s, and many other Scranton sights.
Cost: $35 adults, $25 children | Buy tickets here
P.S. Yes, OfficeTally’s Q&A with Andy is coming later this summer. Stay tuned!70 comments
