Goofs

Pam asks Jim why his avatar has a guitar slung over his shoulder, questioning if he even knows how to play guitar. Jim is clearly caught off guard and the implication seems to be that he does not, but has only chosen to have a guitar in a fantasy context. However, in an earlier episode at his BBQ, when we see his room Pam herself excitedly points out his guitar set up ready to use on a stand. While neither scene conclusively proves he can or cannot play guitar, they seem contradictory. See more »

A wonderful episode.
1 November 2010 | by PWNYCNYSee all my reviews

This is an excellent episode. Besides being humorous, the story is wonderful. Michael makes a commercial that constructively engages his staff in a project that makes them feel good and sells a product. Yet his ad is rejected purely for political reasons and Michael knows it and he is miffed for good reason. Corporate's ad is flashy but unimaginative and highlights the company as a corporate entity instead of the people who work for the company. What a downer. The episode also shows how Jim really likes Michael and does something to lift Michael's morale and the morale of the entire staff. Although Michael is self centered and boorish and commits numerous faux pas, this episode shows that he is also caring, engaging, and in his own way likable. What a great episode.
