The US version of The Office (which does an excellent job of being almost as funny as the BBC version) is no stranger to life online. It’s fun to spot Kevin, Meredith, Creed, Roy, Pam all on MySpace, and Dwight has a blog. This week they dipped into Second Life. The very same week as CSI:NY; It’s all getting very mainstream.
Of course, the Office’s treatment of SL was as tongue-in-cheek as you’d expect…
Dwight: “Second Life is not a game. It is a Multi User Virtual Environment. It doesn’t have points or scores or winners or losers.”
Jim: “Oh, it has losers.”
Update: Aleister Kronos has been blogging and engaging in very interesting discussion about the nicely viral SL stuff the Office (through Clear Ink) have been doing in Second Life. Here are some links: part 1, part 2, part 3.
