While the team at Pranked.com.au do enjoy the U.S. version, we will always be loyal fans of the original 'The Office' from the UK, with the world’s worst boss played by Ricky Gervais.
We love it for the unique comedy in the series, which is so incredibly dry that often you feel uncomfortable just watching the show.
For the uninformed, The Office was a British TV series that screened on BBC in 2001. Created, written, and directed by two funny men - Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
These two later went on to create numerous other series together, which have all been a good laugh, some you may have seen with a Dwarf names Warwick.
The Americans went on to copy this series, with Steve Carrell playing David Brent, which was received well in the US. The humour changed a bit in translation, but nevertheless they Yanks succeeded in copying a successful series from overseas to America.
A great prankster from the series was Tim, who would constantly push Gareth’s buttons to get a reaction out of him. One of our favourites was the ‘Stapler Jelly’ prank.
We are proud to say that we have successful completed the ‘Stapler Jelly’ prank in our office before, only difference was we put a Shock Stapler in the jelly!
Here’s the original from the Office.
