“Most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up, to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it’s good for me, it’s the perfect way to start the day.” — Michael Scott from the Season 2 episode, The Injury
Quill’s Dunder Mifflin paper products will air an ad during ABC’s broadcast of the Oscars Sunday night. But because the ABC affiliate in Scranton banned the ad due to the product’s tie to NBC, the ad will air in Utica, NY, instead.
Utica has a special place on “The Office,” as the arch rival branch to the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin at the heart of the series.
Scranton’s loss is Utica’s gain. Utica! Utica!
Here’s the ad, entitled “The Battle.”
If you missed their Super Bowl ad that aired in Scranton, here’s Paper War.
Just like Michael Scott did in The Office Season 5 episode, Golden Ticket, Steve Jobs had a golden ticket idea to promote the launch of the iMac:
Steve’s idea was to do a Willy Wonka with it. Just as Wonka did in the movie, Steve wanted to put a golden certificate representing the millionth iMac inside the box of one iMac, and publicize that fact. Whoever opened the lucky iMac box would be refunded the purchase price and be flown to Cupertino, where he or she (and, presumably, the accompanying family) would be taken on a tour of the Apple campus.
Steve had already instructed his internal creative group to design a prototype golden certificate, which he shared with us. But the killer was that Steve wanted to go all out on this. He wanted to meet the lucky winner in full Willy Wonka garb. Yes, complete with top hat and tails.
Michael: … most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then, I wake up, to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it’s good for me, it’s the perfect way to start the day.
This awesome gadget is called the Wake n’ Bacon and “wakes you up with the smell of cooking bacon instead of a buzzer.” Michael Scott would be all over it!
In The Office Season 4 episode Dunder Mifflin Infinity, Michael drives his car into a lake while blindly following GPS directions.
Think it couldn’t happen in real life? Read on:
Three Japanese tourists in Australia found themselves in an embarrassing situation after their GPS navigation system lured them down the wrong path.
As the three drove their rented Hyundai Getz into Moreton Bay, they found the GPS device guiding them from a gravel road into thick mud. They tried to get back to solid ground, but as the tide rose they were forced to abandon their car. Passengers on passing ferries watched in amazement.
