Legos teased a collaboration with the popular show Thursday on social media
, with a quote from the show and a photo of a Lego trapped in yellow jello — a reference to a joke from “The Office.” In the background, “Dwight” is written on a tape dispenser.
This is not Lego’s first foray with iconic television shows. In 2019, Lego released a set of Central Perk
, the New York coffee shop from “Friends.” That set featured over 1,000 pieces and included mini-figures 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.
Almost a decade after the show’s finale, demand for the show continues to run deep. Viewers streamed the show for about 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.
