A The Last of Us Part 1 player realizes that an office building in the game looks a lot like Dunder Mifflin from the NBC comedy series The Office.
A fan of The Last of Us Part 1 has noticed that an office building found within the game looks a lot like Dunder Mifflin from the NBC comedy series The Office. As the player went through the building, they noticed that a lot of the furniture, desk placements, and private rooms were very similar to what was seen in the show. It is just one of many new details that players are discovering in The Last of Us Part 1.
In mid-2021, it was revealed that a new version of The Last of Us was in development. The game was eventually titled The Last of Us Part 1, a remake of the original. Fans of the franchise have been playing the game all the same and are noticing plenty of new details, with one of the latest finds seemingly being a nod to The Office of all things.
Since the new version of the game was released, fans have shared the things that they’ve discovered within the game. One gamer, for example, noticed that in The Last of Us Part 1 glass shards will actually stay in someone’s face. More recently, TikTok user rxelei noticed that an office building in the game was a dead ringer for Dunder Mifflin from The Office. He went on to point out the similarities between the office within the game and that of the show.
The Office was a mockumentary-style sitcom that ran on NBC from 2005-2013 and helped turn Steve Carell and John Krasinski into household names. The story focused on the various characters at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, Inc and the hijinks the employees get into while working at the company. The show garnered new fans when it moved to streaming services like Netflix and gamers have created their own tributes to the series. For example, an Animal Crossing fan recreated Dunder Mifflin within the game while another recreated the entire opening credit sequence. But now it appears that at least one designer from The Last of Us Part 1 was a fan of the series as well.
With The Last of Us Part 1 fans have discovering so many new secrets, such as a Mortal Kombat Easter Egg in The Last of Us Part 1, this Dunder Mifflin cameo seems par for the course. With so many similarities to the building layout from the show, it seems likely that this was a deliberate addition by Naughty Dog.
The Last Of Us Part 1 is available now on the PS5 with a PC version also in development.
