  1. Rainn looks so good in those photos! There is no Dwight there…all Rainn.

    Also, Congrats to Bidder 12! Have a blast and thanks for supporting a good cause. You deserve it!

  2. The “Girlfriend” video is super! I love this song, and am quite embarrassed by that, but the video and song are perfect for Pam and Jam!

    Great job!

  3. Mega-props to Tori – that was A-W-E (clap clap) S-O-M-E! (At least we Team Karen members are gracious in defeat.) The expression on Karen’s face under “disappear” was inspired, as was the creative use of accelovision.

  4. Wow!! That person is one lucky person & must have a lot of money to be able to do this! If they file a “full” report, I hope that means there’ll be spoilers! (At least, for the people who like spoilers.) Since they will be there when they are filming an episode! Anyway, congrats to that person!
    Also, the JAM video is really cute, I have to say! :)

  5. Sheesh FINALLY, I’ve been waiting for a Jim/Pam/Karen video set to “Girlfriend”. It was great!

  6. ok… “girlfriend” video… soooo good!! the editing was perfect along with the song! so cute!

  7. That Steve Carrell interview was great. He is just so down to earth and grateful and sweet! It really blows my mind. He deserves every bit of success he gets. What a good guy – and of course hilarious, too!

  8. Oh. Em. Gee. Tori, you rock. That amount of joy that vid brought me is…

  9. Thanks BeckySue, I will represent the OT with pride. It’s been two days since I won the auction and I’m still flipping out! Me and the three people I’m taking all had a huge party Friday night to celebrate. I still can’t believe it. My accountant can’t believe it either.

  10. Well, I guess the people at USA today aren’t huge fans of The Office. How could you not be???

  11. Hmpf, Robert Bianco, did you even watch the show last year? ” …NBC’s much-improved The Office — even if the show is still not as good as the British original. ” To be fair, I didn’t watch the British version ’til last summer, but my hackles go up whenever someone implies that my favorite show is not also their favorite show. hmpf.
    Loved, loved, loved Tori’s video. Because that was probably what Pam was thinking from time to time, but would never say it out loud. ;-)

  12. Great video Tori! Love the song (makes me want to jump around and dance like an idiot) and it fits perfectly with Pam!

  13. Thank you for the comments about my video :) I had a lot of fun making it, and I am happy people enjoyed watching it!
