OfficeTally to be acquired by NBC Universal

UPDATE: HAPPY APRIL FOOL’S DAY!

THIS POST WAS AN APRIL FOOL’S DAY PRANK; NONE OF IT IS TRUE.

Happy April 1st, everyone. And judging by the emotion of some of the comments, we just barely survived the day. ;)

A few little tidbits:

  • I received word directly from The Office set that even some of the cast members believed the announcement to be true!
  • Read Remote Access’ coverage of the prank.
  • Read Remote Access’ follow-up interview with me.
  • I want to give a shout-out to the fine employees of DMI Racine who put together one heck of an NBC.com prank page, and to my friends at nbc.com, who reviewed my acquisition announcement to make sure it sounded realistic. (They suggested the delightful phrase “geo-filtered.”)

And finally, to all of you Tallyheads who so passionately expressed your feelings about this announcement, thank you. :)

We now resume our regularly scheduled programming.

  1. 4/5 of those changes sound pretty bad. I come here for all those extras that NBC can’t give us!

    I’m excited about the success of Officetally; however, as an avid fan of The Office, I can’t say that I’m too excited about some of the changes. :(

  3. Well Tanster, I am going to go out on a limb here and say you had me going until I followed the link to the Racine April Fool’s Day page. Nice one!

  4. Wow. I totally forgot to today was April Fool’s! I nearly had a heart attack. Well done!
