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).

When Jim “relocated” Dwight’s desk

The start of the desk wars trilogy, Jim manages to relocate Dwight to the gents’, although it doesn’t stop him from getting his work done.

From: Season 3, Episode 15 “Phyllis’ Wedding”

When Jim was Dwight… and Dwight was Jim

From: Season 3, Episode 20 “Product Recall”

When Jim gift-wrapped Dwight’s desk

From: Season 5, Episode 11 “Moroccan Christmas”
