The Best Pranks from The Office

As Rainn Wilson, the brains behind everyone’s favourite office misfit Dwight Schrute, celebrates his 50th birthday this week we take a look at some classic Dwight and Jim moments.

It’s one of those rare times where the US remake of a well loved British show isn’t a total shambles (we’re looking at you The IT Crowd, The Inbetweeners, Spaced…) and the show received a huge 42 Primetime Emmy Award nominations during its nine season run.

Part of its charm was the love/hate relationship between Dwight and Jim Halpert – the US show’s version of Gareth and Tim from Wernham Hogg – and the countless pranks played on each other to relieve the boredom of the 9-5 grind.

So here we are, our favourite Jim/Dwight pranks from The Office. Let us know in the comments if we’ve missed your favourite out…

 

When Jim put Dwight’s stapler in jelly

From: Season 1, Episode 1 “Pilot”

Much of the script for the first couple of seasons were lifted direct from the UK series, including the first prank of the show – the classic stationary in jelly (or Jell-O in this case).
