Since its premiere in 2005, The Office has not stopped collecting fanatics worldwide. Last year, with the quarantine installed in many countries by the pandemic of coronavirus, the serie it floated once more and proved that it does not go out of style. Among all those followers is nothing less than the singer Billie Eilish, who had a participation in the podcast of Brian Baumgartner and took the opportunity to talk with Steve Carell.
Probably, the history of this paper company located in Scranton is one of the comedies that marked the industry and that served as a reference for many other series that came later. Steve Carell’s performances as Michael Scott, John Krasinski como Jim Halpert, Jenna Fischer as Pam Beesley and Rainn Wilson like Dwight Schrute, they won over audiences who repeat the episodes over and over again with the same enthusiasm as on that first opportunity.
An example of this is Billie Eilish, who years ago confessed to having seen at least 12 times the nine-season series with 201 chapters in total. That was not the only time he did it: he showed the thematic decoration of his bedroom, mentioned his fanaticism in interviews, remembered iconic phrases by heart and even dedicated the beginning of a song to him on his album.

What is The Office Deep Dive?
Brian Baumgartner, who played the sympathetic Kevin Malone in series (loaded in Amazon Prime Video), has a podcast on The Office which is available on digital platforms. Previously, he was in charge of the program An Oral History of The Office on iHeartRadio: there she invited Eilish and Carrell to talk about this particular passion of the artist.
This year and as a second installment, the three talked again and a topic emerged that their fans wanted to know a little more about. Is that in the song My Strange Addiction, they are heard samples with dialogues by the protagonist of the series. In that sense, Kevin’s interpreter inquired: “Why did you make that decision? The Office is your strange addiction?”. Eilish didn’t hesitate for a second and concluded: “It’s definitely my weird addiction and that’s why I have to use the theme”.
