Rainn Wilson "kidnaps" Office co-star

Dwight SchruteIn an effort to promote his new movie The Rocker, Rainn Wilson has "kidnapped" his co-star of The Office Jenna Fischer. On a post on Jenna's MySpace page, Wilson promises that she will be released if his movie grosses 18.7 million dollars (presumably the cost of making it).

There's even a website up detailing the progress of the kidnapping: FreeJennaNow.com. The first question I have is: what happens to Jenna if the movie doesn't reach the $18.7 million goal? That answer is left intentionally vague. My guess is he'll let her go anyway.

I'm glad Jenna is being a good sport about all this (watch the videos to see how Jenna is playing along), otherwise I would find any sort of image involving tying up a woman and leaving her in a vehicle somewhat disturbing. I guess he needed to "kidnap" someone America cares about in order for this Dwight-like scheme to work (and a co-worker who would go along with this silly promotion in the first place). Of course, for better publicity,he could have kidnapped Michael Scott. I think more people would have noticed if Steve Carell was missing.

I can't believe that this inane, idiotic, uncomfortable show keeps getting the raves it does. It has got to be the worst show on TV, running neck and neck with Earl.

I have tried watching it on several occasions thinking that I must be missing something, but no, it's just bad. I even watched the first two episodes to make sure I had the premise right. The last show I watched left me with an uncomfortable feeling. I saw no humor in it at all.

It must be the dumbing down of America that is at fault. More and more we are being subjected to social ignorance to where too many people are thinking it is acceptable and funny.

Wake up America!

The videos with Angela and Creed were great. Based on your comments I thought it was going to be creepy but it was kind of funny.
