Tori’s Christmas Video

From Tori:

“The strike started one month ago. While negotiations are ongoing, it’s pretty clear we won’t see a Christmas episode of “The Office” this year. Don’t get me wrong, I fully support the writers and the WGA. But, the Christmas specials hold a little spot in my heart because “Christmas Party” was the episode that made me a regular viewer of the show.

I put this little Christmas video together for the fans, writers, cast and crew of the show. Miss you!

P.S. Anyone want to Yankee Swap an episode of “Celebrity Apprentice” for some real television? Write a letter.”


  1. Wow. Thanks so much for that little trip down memory lane. You made me smile…but it’s bittersweet. I still haven’t given up hope.

  2. Okay, I just cried. Within the first 20 seconds. Amazing video Tori! The scene with everyone throwing snowballs in the parking lot is one of my favorites, and it paired with the lyrics absolutely got me. Please come home Office!

  3. Total downer, but it was lovely. Great song choice, and the clips were perfect!
    It just doesn’t feel like Christmas without an Office Christmas party. I hope they still make the annual holiday episode, no matter when the strike ends. Besides, we seem to start celebrating Christmas two months early in this country anyways, so let it keep going two months later so we can get a holiday ep in February!

  4. If not one in time for Christmas, maybe we’ll get a Valentine’s Day episode. Or a St. Patrick’s Day episode. Or something where Dwight gets to light something on fire again.

  5. Okay – I’m crying. Blubbering might be a better word for it, actually.

    Tori, that was awesome blossom. Extra awesome because it was set to Death Cab!

    Please, Office, come home!!

  6. Wow, this made me more emotional than it should have. Nice song choice! John would be proud! Both of the Christmas episodes are so great, and it breaks my heart that we won’t get one this year. Come home to me, Office! That is, of course, once the writers have fair contracts.

  7. Wow. The lyrics were perfect…”And all the fun we had last year” and “Baby, please come home”

    I can’t go a year without my Christmas Office…or any Office for that matter.

  8. Tori, thanks for that, it was amazing. GOD I MISS THIS SHOW. Great job on the video, great editing and perfect song choice.

  9. Tori – that was just beautiful! Thank you for putting this together. I started watching The Office at the beginning of Season 2 but it wasn’t until Christmas Party that I became a true Office fanatic. Also, ABC was one of my fave episodes of season 3. The Christmas episodes the past two seasons have just been really special and I’m sad we’ll miss one this year. But hopefully the strike will end soon and we’ll get a special episode for some other holiday before the summer!

  10. All I want for Christmas is The Office!

    Tori- this video was great! I actually teared up a bit. I’m really going to miss having a Christmas episode this year. So sad.

  11. Wow! Add me to the list of those that got teary eyed. Tory, great vid and great song choice! Death Cab! I miss my show y’all. If they organize an Office group hug, I want you guys to stand next to me.

  12. Oh my gosh, absolute perfection. I actually wanted to cry. :( and also :)

    Thanks Tori and Tanster!

  13. That was great! It made me sad. I can’t TAKE this, kids! It really does kinda feel like Christmas is cancelled.

  14. I think you could see a christmas episode in like february or march or something. I don’t see a reason they have to throw out all their plans and be a total slave to the calendar.

  15. Thank you for all of the nice comments! I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to make anyone sad.

  16. Yay, Death Cab cover! One of my favorite Christmas songs as well.

    Also, beautifully done. No Christmas episode this year really hurts, as lame as that might sound. I keep watching “Christmas Party” and “A Benihana Christmas.” Tear up, just a little, ever time.

  17. I really have a tear in my eye. I miss The Office so much. Thanks Jennie. That was amazing. Writers, please come back!

  18. I was hoping this would cheer me up…..but it just made me sad. :( I miss these people………

  19. love the video! almost make me cry. I can’t believe we’re not having a christmas episode this year. sniff

  20. Christmas Party is also the episode that got me hooked! Hey Man, I love you…this many dollars worth.

  21. OMG Tori! I laughed and I got teary eyed, I felt like singing! Oh, this made me miss the Office so much but also apperciate it, the writers, the actors, and the fans! Amazing video, perfect song choice, perfect show!

    My favorite part had to be the JAM and Dwangela parts. I loved you got Angela crying then Dwight grabbing her hand. OH I’m getting teary eyed just thinking about it, because even though that’s not even the same episode, you’d know he’d do that for her even now!

    Here’s hoping for a late Christmas special!

    Oh and what was the name of the song? I know it was Death Cab, but the song name?

  22. Brilliant – right down to the agonizingly appropriate Michael quote from ‘Behihana Christmas’ in the closing title.

    How nice of the Suits to screw up Christmas for us. Do they really think it’s wise to p*ss off their customers this way?

  23. Great choice of song (I love Death Cab for Cutie =]) and great clips. This Christmas is going to be so sad without a new Office episode to look forward to.

  24. that was great! It made me a little sad though, I was looking forward to this christmas to see what jim would do with pam. I hope the strike is over soon. Office thurdsays were the highlight of my week. :(

  25. aww i love it!

    and its death cab! :)

    sigh….i MISS the office! i REALLY just started getting into it…and now…it’s gone! :(

    why won’t NBC just pay what is rightfully owed!!??

  26. I love Christmas episodes, especially of The Office! I, too, was excited to see what would happen with Jim and Pam. I think all the shows should do their Christmas episodes whenever they get around to it, post-strike. NBC should have fake Christmas in April or something.

  27. Love it!
    One of my favorite Christmas songs of all time &
    One of my favorite episodes.
    Thanks for keeping the Christmas spirit alive!

  28. I don’t know if its the stress from finals, maybe i’m a little homesick or I just really LOVE the office – but that made me tear up. (It doesn’t take a lot for me to cry.)

    Things that are awesome about Christmas:
    1. gift giving
    2. gift getting
    3. holiday food
    4. The Office Christmas episode!!!

  29. Christmas episode of The Office and Death Cab for Cutie… what else could a girl ask for? Thanks for posting. Funny and bittersweet. I MISS THE OFFICE!!!!

  30. Great job, Tori! I have that song on a Christmas comp CD somewhere, and I don’t think I will ever listen to it the same way again.
    Oh, Santa baby, bring the Office back!
    In other Christmas video glory, let’s not forget this little piece of magic from last year

  31. That was wonderful! Thank you! And I had never heard the Death Cab For Cutie version of this Christmas song–only the Darlene Love one. So win, win, win!

  32. I wish I could’ve seen what preppy gifts Andy would have bought for everyone. Or what great gift Jim would get Pam. Those love birds.

    Great video. Never heard the song before. Love it!

  33. Great video! Why does it feel like summer? I’m feeling like The Office is way too far away from me. So much that I actually forgot for a minute that Jim and Pam were together and Dwight and Angela aren’t. I miss having the episodes on iTunes. At least I could watch this season’s… but no. And now, Christmas is canceled.

  34. I am so sad that there will not be a Christmas episode this year. I hope it comes back soon. Great video though!
