Death Cab For Halpert

Did any of you guys take us up on our “Guess Which Song Gibbard Will Cover” game last night and stream Ben’s set at 9:30 Club? ‘Cause you forgot to tell us that Office mate John Krasinski strapped on a guitar and got on stage. Bad readers. You know we’re geeks and this is what we live for! Details are sketchy and we have no .jpgs or .movs to back it up, but Pop Candy reports Jim Halpert appeared during Ben’s set last night, armed with a six string, “professing his love of Wilco”…

Add that to his prior tryst with the Shins, and Krasinski continues to make his case to supersede Braff as ‘top indie-loving sitcom star wet dream.’ All he has to do now is date and dump Mandy Moore (two Moore jabs in one day, apologies).

Last night’s cameo isn’t that surprising — Ben and John both appear in Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, and John co-hosted the Directions DVD launch party last year — but we want details. Fill us in.

Or stream the archived set here; we imagine your cue will be the simultaneous scream of a few hundred females?


Best exchange from last night’s The Office ep goes to Ed Helms and Angela Kinsey though…

ANDY: Angela, hey, oh thank god. Go tell somebody! [Floating down river]
ANGELA: What Andy? What should I tell them?
ANDY: Go tell them that I’m floating away, obviously.
ANGELA: I don’t understand what you want from me. [Playing dumb]
ANDY: Angela, it’s pretty simple. Look at what I’m doing and GO TELL SOMEBODY IT!!

Classic Helms.

UPDATE: Give Me My Remote’s got some pictorial proof…
