The Office Makes In-memoriam Dedication to a Fan

In the closing credits of a Thursday repeat, The Office made a dedication to one of its biggest fans: Nathan Robinson, a 15-year-old Newton, Massachusetts, high school student who died March 14 of complications from the flu. (Office cast members B.J. Novak and John Krasinski are also Newton natives.)The show's tribute ran alongside a video of Robinson playing The Office's theme song on the piano, as a photo of the teen appeared (below, from E!). Robinson loved music, math and the Dunder-Mifflin crew. The NBC show learned about the youth through a Boston Globe article that mentioned that a friend had encouraged him to try playing the theme song. The attempt resulted in "Nathan Plays Piano," a 32-second clip. The friend who encouraged Robinson and shot the video shared her reaction to the dedication, saying, "It was really amazing! Nathan was such a fan of The Office, and he would have been so excited." — Anna Dimond
