The plans for this event have changed, for the better. We have been working with the producers of the Office, and they have agreed to send some of the cast to join us in Scranton on May 4, 2013. This is going to be an exciting day of Q&A, a parade, and a big event at PNC Field. For those who already have tickets to the original May 5 event, please hold on to them, as they may be your ticket to one or more of the events on May 4. We will notify ticketholders via email.
More details to come.
We all know NBC's the Office ends its long television run in May. Every Scrantonion is sad to see it go, but we want to send the show off in an original way.
The idea is that we have a local band write a send-off song (3-4 minutes) and record it. We'll pick the best original song and use it for the basis of our video.
Then on May 5th, we load the streets of Scranton with thousands of people, and do a 'lip dub' to the song. If you're unfamiliar with what a lip dub is, here are a couple of great examples.
What We Need:
- We need a talented band or singer to record an original send-off song for the office. The more references to Scranton and the plot and characters in the show the better. Submissions can be made via email (MP3) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We also need people and organizations to be front and center during the video, doing the actual lip dub. To be a part of this, please order an "I want to SING!" ticket below. We will be in touch with you.
- We also need a crowd of grateful Scrantonians for the final scene. We're looking for as many people as possible. For this, please order an "I Want to be in the CROWD" ticket below.
We're so excited for this event. Of course, it's all free, we're just using the tickets to track interest and to get in touch with you. Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you May 5th.
