Dwight Schrute Vs. Planking

On a whole I found last night’s Office premiere to be fairly disappointing. Ed Helms as the new branch manager is fine but lacked any punch, and James Spader’s James Spader-iness was criminally underused (hopefully that changes). Not all was lost though as the show tackled planking early in the episode. The low functioning phenomenon is pretty much dead now by internet standards, but it’s still pretty topical by network sitcom standards.

Dwight Schrute was charged with putting a stop to inter-office planking and he of course did so in the Schrutiest of fashions. That bit and Stanley’s new “Shove it up your butt!” routine were enough to convince me that The Office still has some gas in the tank. Full Schrute Vs. Planking GIF wall after the jump followed by several other fun insta-tributes I thought were worth sharing.
