THE OFFICE: “Cafe Disco” Promo – I Will Not Be Fooled, NBC!

May 1, 2009 by  

Dear NBC Promo Department,

I’ve fallen for your trickery before. I will not be fooled again. I’ll watch THE OFFICE this week because I have been a loyal fan since Season 1. My watching has nothing to do with this promo so don’t go patting yourselves on the back.



P.S. You are cruel and you were probably never hugged as children.

    Totally agree with you Kath. There’s got to be a catch.

    You’re right. I don’t buy it. But I’ve also always thought that it’s not really plausible to see a Jim/Pam wedding. Jim and Pam are both pretty private people and are usually guarded when it comes to what the cameras catch. In this fictional documentary world, did they sign some kind of waiver that said they could be filmed at any time during their personal lives? Unless they are getting a good amount of money from the documentary crew to help pay for the wedding, I don’t see why they would let it be filmed…(Yes, I think about The Office way too much.)

    NBC is telling us we get a Jim/Pam wedding next week; the Office people are telling us we get it in the fall. The problem here is, both of these entities have histories of being LYING LIARS WHO LIE. I thereore believe nothing, and yet nothing would really surprise me. Okay, it would. But it shouldn’t.

    Don’t worry, I too WILL NOT be fooled into such buffoonery! I love my Jim & Pam too much to think NBC will spoil it like that on a silly little preview. But I am a faithful fan and will watch as always because it’s my fav. show. I just can’t see it happening yet…but the writers & cast & NBC are always trying to throw us off a little so who knows whose actually telling us the truth!

    But devlishly wrong of them to do such a cruel thing to us with such a preview. Jim and Pam looked awfully happy and smiley though….

    Why are you blaming the promo monkeys, Kath? I say the blame belongs on Paul and Jen and Greg and the other writers who wrote/staged/shot that scene in the first place. You remember them, right? The ones who ripped out the heart of my love for The Office last spring when they pulled the proposal “Gotcha!” on us in Goodbye, Toby? They’re the ones I no longer trust. They’re the ones who are devilishly cruel, in my book. If that scene didn’t exist, the NBC promotions department wouldn’t have it to show us.

    The marriage is either gonna be sprung on us without a clue (like the proposal was) or it’s gonna be a big hyped up episode starting a week or two before it, at least.

    I can’t imagine they’d spring it on us. Faithful JAM fans would likely set up parties in their homes, I know I’d at least put on my best t-shirt 🙂 Way too much potential buzz to induce advertisers so I’m not buying it.

    I don’t know – I loved the proposal so much that I am not sure that I want to know about the wedding before it happens.

    The replays on that promo, though, border on annoying.

    LOL! Your letter is right on!

  10. Bonnie on May 3rd, 2009 1:19 pm

    Absolutely! And no way they’re AT WORK on their wedding day. And not even on the season finale? No way I’m buying it.

  11. Lisa on May 4th, 2009 12:30 am

    Bonnie, that is so what I said. I was like they are getting married on a work day, a work day they decided to show up for. No I don’t think so. I hope we get to see Pam and Jim’s wedding, but I want a bigger wedding episode than the one we got for Phyllis. Anyway yeah, I don’t fall for them getting married in this next episode. But I do want to know what they are actually talking about.

    Nice try NBC!
