The Dunder Mifflin Paper Company has changed hands and is no longer focused on your paper needs—which makes total sense, because who uses paper anymore? What’s bizarre is that its new owners are Minions, who are here to provide only the very best quality of evilness.

To tease the release of Despicable Me spinoff Minions: The Rise of Gru on July 1, the official Peacock streaming service has shaken up Scranton and spoofed the opening theme of The Office with the yellow no-gooders. Ever since the mock documentary ended in 2013, the Minions have overtaken the firm and renamed it as “Dunder Minion Evil Company, Inc.”

The crossover might be out of pocket, but there’s at least one similarity between the sitcom and the animated films. Steve Carell, who played Michael Scott, voices Gru in the Despicable Me franchise. It’s little wonder that the towering villain has now helmed the role of regional manager at Dunder Minion Evil Company, Inc.

Watch out, Prison Mike, you’re not the baddest person around anymore.

One for diehard fans of The Office, the parody reprises some of the show’s funniest moments, from the Jell-O stapler prank to Kevin’s chili mishap.

The Office moved into its new home, NBCUniversal’s Peacock, last year, treating viewers to not only infinite reruns of their favorite sitcom but also never-before-seen scenes. It so happens that Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and the first Minions film are also available there.



If you’re into pop-culture spoofs like this one, then you won’t be disappointed by Sesame Street’s recent remake of the Friends intro.
