All you binge-watchers out there, you better up your game because right now, it looks like Billie Eilish has set a new standard. Everyone knows that the young star is a huge fan of the sitcom, The Office. So, when she hopped aboard an Instagram live session with Rainn Wilson, fans were ecstatic.
Even those of you who aren’t too familiar with the show, you can’t not know who Dwight Schrute is. Atleast, that name should ring some sort of bell, even if it’s a distant one. Well, Rainn Wilson plays this very character on the show and Billie Eilish had a little confession to make to him.
Billie Eilish & The Office – A Wild Relationship
“I just finished watching The Office for the 15th time two days ago. Every time I hit that episode that says finale, I’m always like, ‘Goddammit!'” she said. Now, that’s a quarantine well spent. But Rainn Wilson thought otherwise as he ordered her to move on to another show.
Now, that’s going to be very hard for Billie Eilish considering that she’s taken fangirling to a whole new level with this show. In fact, for those of you who didn’t know, she even included snippets of dialogue from the show for a track off her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
The lucky track that received this treatment was, “My Strange Addiction”. This tune kicks off with Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott, inadvertently name-dropping the singer in a line from the episode “Threat Level Midnight”.
“No Billie, I haven’t done that dance since my wife died,” Carell’s character says. Settling comfortably between Billie’s vocals, are dialogues from a number of other characters from ‘The Office’.
Anyway, back to Rainn Wilson, he interviewed Billie as part of his media company SoulPancake’s IG Live series ‘Hey There, Human’, which brings people from all over the world together, while they deal with life in quarantine. We can bravely bet that Billie will start re-watching the show for the 16th time, very soon.
