Office 2010: The Movie trailer is woefully unrealistic

The Office 2010: The Movie trailer (for a film that doesn’t exist) makes it seem like the life of a nerd is super dangerous, filled with excitement and beautiful people. We don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble here, but the reality is something a bit more mundane: fourteen hour days spent in pajamas, cereal for breakfast and dinner (we don’t get lunch breaks), and families who constantly struggle with the question, “do you even have a job”? And only once did we ever have to jump out of a helicopter in pursuit of the ultimate KIRF. It’s awesome to dream, though, right?
