We all love classic TV Shows. At least that much is clear from how John Krasinski has ingeniously woven a classic joke from “The Office” into the promotion of his latest film, “IF,” starring Ryan Reynolds.

The duo, along with actor Randall Park, have given fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse that pays homage to an iconic prank from the series, ahead of the film’s teaser release during the Super Bowl.

The clever teaser reimagines a memorable scene from “The Office” Season Nine, where Jim Halpert, played by Krasinski, has his friend Steve, portrayed by Park, impersonate him to fool Dwight Schrute.

“Did you just break the fourth wall?”

This time, Park insists he is Krasinski, confusing Reynolds by claiming to have been the director and writer of “IF” all along.

The scene mirroring the documentary-style humor of “The Office.”

The jest culminates with Park breaking the fourth wall which prompts Reynolds to exclaim:



“IF” marks a reunion for Krasinski and his former “The Office” co-star Steve Carrell, who lends his voice to one of the film’s main imaginary characters.
