John Mayer: musician, Dundie winner

John MayerDuring last week's episode of The Office, Michael and Andy sang an... um... interesting rendition of John Mayer's "Your Body Is A Wonderland" to their new Benihana girlfriends. Of course, the show had to get the rights to the song before they could use it. Knowing that his work would be goofed on, John Mayer initially declined to have the song used on the program, one of his favorites. He later reconsidered, after he got some more information from producer BJ Novak... and asked for a Dundie.

Well, it worked, and John Mayer is now a Dundie winner ("Tallest Music Dude"). That was a pretty clever move! Not only did he get his work on one of his favorite shows, but he also made his way into the annals of Dundie history. Nice work, Mayer. I commend you.

Aside from all these cool things, I think he won my respect when he performed a spot on rendition of Sweet Home Chicago during the 3rd episode of Conan O'Brien's trip to Chicago.

He was previously cool from his appearance in the Chappelle Show with the "White People Can't Dance Experiment" & "Music in the Office" sketches in Season 2...

but then again -- outside that his music pretty much blows...
