Ryan Started The Fire Fan Video for The Office

The Office Meets Billy Joel in "Ryan Started the Fire"

Let this be a lesson to you me: When Jenna Fischer tells you something's funny, you should probably listen.

I've seen a lot of fan videos in my life. I've gotten pretty picky.

But today, I finally decided to just watch the darn thing, and you know what? It's pretty hilarious. There are so many great lines ("That's what she said/squeaky chair/bobblehead/healthcare") it's hard to pick a favorite, but if forced, I might have to go with the simple, but perfectly timed, "mustard-yellow shirt" in the first verse. It does go a little "on and on and on and on," but even that's faithful to the original.

The Office itself is a repeat tonight, so why not relive some of your favorite moments, Billy Joel-style? Jenna Fischer wants you to, and I've learned you ignore her at your own peril. To watch the video, just
