Legos teased a collaboration with the popular show on Thursday on social networks, featuring a quote from the show and a photo of a Lego trapped in yellow jelly – a reference to a joke from “The Office”. In the background, “Dwight” is written on a tape dispenser.
This isn’t Lego’s first foray into iconic TV shows. In 2019, Lego released a set of Central Perk, the New York cafe from “Friends.” This set included over 1,000 pieces and included minifigures of Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe, and Gunther. Last year, the company produced a similar set for “Seinfeld,” modeled after Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment.
Nearly a decade after the show’s finale, demand for the show continues to be strong. Viewers streamed the show for an estimated 52 billion minutes in 2018, according to Nielsen data, and was one of the most popular offerings on streaming services at the time.
“The Office” is a mockumentary-style show following Steve Carell as the boss of a paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. It first premiered in 2005 and ran for nine seasons.
