John Krasinski and His The Office Costars Just Recreated the “Forever” Dance on Zoom
A Maryland couple got the virtual wedding all Pam and Jim fans dream of.
Well, John Krasinski’s done it again.
While we’ll always be partial to the episode of “Some Good News” from a few weeks ago, in which the Newton native teamed up with Big Papi to pay tribute to Massachusetts healthcare workers, the most recent episode of Krasinski’s positivity-spreading YouTube show is sure to bring a smile to the faces of any fans of The Office out there.
The special segment of this week’s episode features Susan and John, a couple from Maryland who got engaged by re-creating Jim’s proposal to Pam in The Office. Yes, you’re remembering that episode correctly—these two apparently love the show so much that they willingly got engaged at a gas station.
“He got down on one knee, and he was like, ‘Just like Jim, I can’t wait any longer,'” Susan recounts to Krasinski.
Krasinski was appropriately impressed by these fans’ dedication. He then offered to officiate their wedding right then and there over Zoom, holding up a paper certificate indicating that he had just gotten ordained for the occasion. Naturally, the couple said yes.
But, the surprises didn’t even stop there. To cap off the episode, Krasinski surprised John and Susan by Zooming in the rest of The Office cast—including Mass. natives Steve Carell, Mindy Kaling, and B.J. Novak—who recreated the iconically-cringey dance to Chris Brown’s “Forever” that they performed at Jim and Pam’s wedding.
A reimagined Zoom wedding feels appropriate for these mega-fans of Pam and Jim. After all, while The Office couple may not have gotten married during a pandemic, their wedding certainly ended up looking a lot different than they had planned after Jim accidentally reveals Pam’s pregnancy, Pam tears her veil, and their coworkers manage to characteristically screw up a number of other elements of the day. While this couple may not have been able to secretly elope on a boat at Niagara Falls, it’s safe to say that this is a solid consolation prize.
