Oh, how I wish I could have been in Scranton over the weekend for The Office convention! About 3,000 people bought tickets for the event, and others came by just to check out the scene. Many of the show's writers, including executive producer Greg Daniels, were in attendance, as was most of the supporting cast (though the big four — Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski — weren't there).
It's a good thing that Office fans are a tech-savvy bunch, because there are tons of photos, videos and stories from the weekend online. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Here's a video of Al Roker hosting the Today Show live from Scranton.
- Check out local band The Scrantones playing the show's theme song — with Creed on guitar!
- Office Tally has a ton of coverage, including footage from the writers' panel.
- The Scranton paper reports that writers have finally discovered a few Pennsylvania treats including Yuengling beer and the Boscov's department store.
- Pop Candy has some great video highlights, including scenes from the look-alike contest and Office Olympics.
