Last night marked the biggest television wedding since Monica and Chandler or Luke and Laura when Jim and Pam got married on The Office. The episode actually surpassed my expectations, and the entire cast got some really funny moments. The episode was chock-full of great moments; Dwight hooking up with Pam’s best friend, Andy tearing his scrotum, Michael hooking up with Pam’s mom, Kevin losing his shoes, Oscar getting offended by Pam’s sister thinking Kevin was his boyfriend, Jim’s slip-up during his toast, and Michael’s awkward attempt at a save. And then, of course, there was the wedding party dancing down the aisle to Forever by (Rihanna-beater) Chris Brown, based on a real-life wedding youtube sensation hit. Let’s suspend disbelief for a moment and not question why all of Jim and Pam’s co-workers would, for some reason, be allowed to walk/dance down the aisle in addition to the wedding party, because, well, the show IS called The Office and a moment like this without the cast of the show wouldn’t feel right. Here is it for those who missed it:
And, the original, as performed at Jill and Kevin Heinz’s wedding (and how awesome is it for them that not only did it become such a huge viral hit, but is now also referenced in one of the most iconic moments on one of the best shows on television?):
All in all, the episode wasn’t nearly as sappy as it could have been, and I thought they did a good job balancing the schmaltzy Jim & Pam stuff with the crazy hijinks that the show does so well.
