Love was the theme in this week's episode of "Some Good News", John Krasinski's YouTube series meant to shed light on the good that's happening around the world amid the coronavirus pandemic. He spotlighted kids' first words, touching moments between siblings and the arrivals of new babies before turning his attention to just a few of the weddings (and even a vow renewal!) that have taken place during this time of social distancing.
Maryland couple John and Susan happen to be big fans of the show and sent Krasinski the video of John's proposal.
John then announced that the much-in-love duo would get married via video call.
"You guys have proved that proposal works 100 per cent of the time" he joked with the two on Zoom, before saying that although he received their request to attend their wedding, he wouldn't mind officiating their wedding, before revealing he'd just gotten ordained for the special occasion. "Ladies and gentlemen, the cast of The Office".
After legally marrying the newlyweds, Krasinski surprised them with the rest of The Office, who helped recreate the iconic dance scene at Jim and Pam's wedding - the one that goes along to Chris Brown's Forever. "And Susan and John, because you elegantly ripped off our proposal, I think it's only fitting that you rip off the wedding too", said John. In addition to serving as the officiant, Krasinski fulfilled the role of best man.
After a wedding song from country star Zac Brown, Krasinski welcomed back some of the cast members of "The Office" to perform at-home versions of the choreographed dance they performed during "The Office" wedding episode, including Cambridge native Mindy Kaling, Acton native Steve Carell, and Newton native B.J. Novak.
