Watch: Rhett Miller Invades the Dunder Mifflin Offices, Pisses Off Dwight Schrute


Looks like we have a new candidate in the running for Dunder Mifflin bossman now that Steve Carell announced that he will be leaving the show.

Well, not really. But in this pretty funny homespun video clip, Old 97's frontman Rhett Miller, who will be headlining this weekend's Oysterfest on Saturday in Frisco, gets a little too comfortable in Michael Scott's desk on the set of The Office.

Dwight Schrute and Pam come along (in character) and belittle him by comparing the Old 97's to Garth Brooks, and then basically undress him. It's all in good fun, but let's just say we prefer Miller's quick wit and comic timing in his songs, not so much on prime time television.

Our biggest disappointment with the clip, though? No "that's what she said" jokes.
