‘The Office’ cast reunites to reenact Pam and Jim’s wedding

John Krasinski hosts Zoom wedding with the rest of 'The Office' cast on 'Some Good News'

For the seventh week in a row, John Krasinski has used the power of the internet to bring Some Good News to folks all across the world during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

After catching wind of a very “familiar” proposal, Krasinski, 40, got ordained as a minister and invited die-hard Office fans and fiancées John and Susan to his YouTube show for the “first and only SGN wedding.”

Just like Jim Halpert (portrayed by Krasinski) did for Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) in the much-beloved sitcom’s Season 5 premiere, John got down on one knee for Susan in front of a gas station, pulled out an engagement ring and said, “I just can’t wait.”

To celebrate the “love-will-conquer-all correspondents” and their seemingly thrust-upon Zoom wedding, Krasinski managed to get not only their parents and best friends in on the virtual event, but Fischer, 46, as well.

After legally marrying the newlyweds, Krasinski surprised them with the rest of The Office, who helped recreate the iconic dance scene at Jim and Pam’s wedding — the one that goes along to Chris Brown’s Forever.

“Since you so elegantly ripped off our show for your proposal, I feel like it’s only fitting that you rip off the wedding, too,” joked Krasinski.

Among several others, fan-favourite characters Michael (Steve Carrell), Dwight (Rainn Wilson), Angela (Angela Kinsey), Kelly (Mindy Kaling), Erin (Ellie Kemper), Kevin (Brian Baumgartner) and Andy (Ed Helms) all made an appearance.

Even popular country singer Zac Brown made a brief appearance at the wedding. He wrote a song for the couple and played it acoustically in place of Susan being walked down the aisle by her father.

On why he chose to recreate Jim’s proposal to Pam, John told Krasinski, “The Office has been something that has connected the two of us for a very long time, so it just felt right.”

In response, Krasinski said, “You now have proved that that proposal works 100 per cent of the time. You just made that so.”

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:

Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are legally obligated to self-isolate for 14 days, beginning March 26, in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others. Some provinces and territories have also implemented additional recommendations or enforcement measures to ensure those returning to the area self-isolate.

Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.

To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
