Watch The Office’s Never-Before-Seen Matrix Cold Open


The office unveiled a never-seen-before cold to usher in the new year and celebrate the move from Netflix to Peacock. On January 1, the series released the clip in which Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) trick Dwight (Rainn Wilson) into believing he was there The matrixsimulated reality of the same name. They send out a series of signs and messages leading Dwight to a warehouse where Hank the security guard (played by the late Hugh Dane) greets him in a leather coat and sunglasses – classic Matrix attire, you know.

Hank then tells Dwight the “truth” about it The matrix, although Dunder Mifflin’s regional manager does not initially buy it. “But the matrix isn’t real,” says Dwight. “It’s a trilogy of flawless, life-changing films and an online game.” But after some persuasive action on Hank’s part, Dwight eventually chooses between a red and a blue pill.

The segment was cut from the ninth and final season of the show, which aired from 2012 to 2013. We can’t believe NBC kept this gem from us for over seven years, but at least we can enjoy it now. Watch the video above before the system error occurs!
