The Office
By Jon Zajac

As a fan of The Office, I know how much fun it can be to incorporate the show’s humor, characters, and storylines into events. One creative way to do this is by using The Office-themed “This or That” icebreaker questions. These questions are designed to spark conversations and build connections among guests by asking them to choose between two options related to the show. Here are some tips on how to incorporate The Office-themed “This or That” questions into your upcoming event:

How to incorporate The Office themed This or That questions

To incorporate The Office-themed “This or That” questions into your event, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand that are related to the show’s characters, storylines, and themes. You can find inspiration from watching episodes, reading recaps, or browsing online forums and fan sites.
  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or a poster board. Encourage your guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions. You can also create a rotation system where each group moves on to the next question after a set amount of time (e.g., 2-3 minutes).
  3. Make sure everyone has a chance to answer each question and listen actively to their responses. Encourage follow-up questions, comments, and discussions that build on the initial answers. You can also share your own insights and opinions about the show to keep the conversation flowing.
  4. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. You can also use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.
  5. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day. For example, you could organize a trivia game based on The Office trivia or create a photo booth with props inspired by the show’s characters and settings.

Ideas on different themes of questions

To keep your The Office-themed icebreaker questions fresh and engaging, you can explore different themes and categories that are relevant to the show. Here are some ideas:

  • Characters: Ask questions related to the personalities, relationships, and quirks of the show’s main characters (e.g., “Which Office character do you relate to the most?” or “Who is your favorite member of Dunder Mifflin’s sales team?”).
  • Storylines: Ask questions about the show’s plot twists, conflicts, and resolutions (e.g., “What was your favorite episode of The Office?” or “Do you prefer the Jim-Pam romance storyline or the Michael Scott management style storyline?”).
  • Themes: Ask questions that explore the show’s themes and messages (e.g., “What lessons have you learned from watching The Office?” or “How has The Office changed your perspective on office culture?”).
  • Humor: Ask questions that tap into the show’s comedic style and humor (e.g., “Which Office character makes you laugh the most?” or “What is your favorite funny moment from the show?”).
  • Cultural references: Ask questions that reference pop culture, history, and current events that are featured in the show (e.g., “What is your favorite celebrity guest appearance on The Office?” or “Which famous movie scene does Michael Scott recreate in the show?”).

By incorporating these different themes of questions into your The Office-themed icebreaker activity, you can keep your guests engaged and entertained while also fostering a sense of community and shared interest. So why not give it a try and see how it can enhance your next event!
