"12 Days of The Office" Starring: YOU!

Three Christmas seasons ago, we Co-Admins of The Office-isms penned an original Office Christmas song parody set to the tune of "The 12 Days of Christmas."  Two years ago, we posted the short version on YouTube (linked below) with images and the basic lyrics and you guys loved it!



Original "12 Days of The Office" Parody



This year, we've decided to revamp it.  Four of our Co-Admins and their families are going to be recording themselves dressed up in Christmas and Office SWAG, singing the full version of our song.  We'll then edit them together to create one awesome morsel of Christmas Office-y goodness for all -isms fans to enjoy :)

We'd LOVE it if fellow dunderheads like ourselves would participate and help make the video even better! In hopes that you will, we've put together a rough simple karaoke version to help you learn the lyrics.


12 Days of The Office: Karaoke!


If you'd like to be in the video, please record yourself on video singing the song in as ridiculous and funny a way as you possibly can, and send it to us.  Bonus points for wearing Office and Christmas SWAG! If you're going to use your phone or tablet to record, please make sure it's turned sideways for widescreen.

It helps if you're as drunk as Pam before you start singing.

8 Behind The Scenes Facts from "The Office" You Probably Don't Know

Alright, so you're an expert on all things The Office, right? We know this because of our bitter memories of your correction comments from over the years.  And by the way, it is "What kind of bear is best?" not "Which kind of bear is best?" thankyouverymuch.

Admin plight aside, we know The Office pretty damn well ourselves.  And even we didn't know most of this stuff.  So check it out, and leave your corrections additions in the comments below!


8) In Greg Daniels' mind (The Office U.S. creator and executive producer), Jim and Pam would have been an interracial couple.  In this alternative showniverse, Craig Robinson would have played Roy instead of Darryl, and Justine, Darryl's ex-wife, would have played Pam.

It would have been tough to hate Craig.
7) Remember that episode in Season 9 where Pam interviews with Bizarro-Michael for a job? (In actuality, Mark played by Bob Odenkirk) That scene was a throwback to the little known fact that Bob Odenkirk nearly got the role of Michael Scott, when Steve Carell almost had to bow out due to another pilot commitment.



6) The opening credit images were shot by John Krasinski.  After he landed the role of Jim, he and some friends took off to Scranton for a road-trip to get a feel for the place.  The title editors later used his shots for the opening sequences.



5) Oscar's being gay was decided because the writers saw Oscar Nunez wearing a pink shirt during a table read.


How to properly TWSS

So, I have this uncle who butchers That's What She Said jokes on the regular. (That's what she said.) He takes comments with zero sexual innuendo and adds a TWSS to the conversation, and then alone,  laughs his heart out.  (That's what she said.) But he doesn't do this just once, no.  (That's what she said!) He repeats the "joke" over and over again after every. single. sentence, however nonsensical. (That's what she said!!!!!)

Seriously. It's an epidemic.

Getting the picture? Yeah...

In an effort to dispel the abuse of our beloved joke, here's The Office-isms' tips for producing a proper and hilarious That's What She Said joke that would make Michael Scott proud.

Well duh, but that doesn't mean we can't still rock a TWSS
