Rainn Wilson Tells Office Super Fan Billie Eilish To Move On

The Office actor interviewed Eilish over Instagram in the weirdest quarantine interview yet.

18 Comments

Quarantine and social distancing may have all of us acting weird, but at least it doesn't come close to Rainn-Wilson-interviewing-Billie-Eilish weird. The two got together for a talk on his Instagram show, Hey There, Human, where he soon renamed the popstar "William Eyelash" and told her to move on from The Office, as reported by EW.

"I just finished watching The Office for a 15th time two days ago," Billie Eilish admitted on the show. She's been open about her Office fandom in the past, with her song My Strange Addiction featuring a handful of voice clips sampled from the iconic show. "Every time I hit that episode that says finale, I'm always like, goddamn it." Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute through the show's nine seasons, told her, "It's time to move on to another show, really. Please!"

It's a reaction he's given to other Office fans before--and not just the famous ones. In a 2017 episode of Conan, the actor begged fans to stop tweeting him about The Office in-jokes years after the show ended (though he still occasionally posts them himself).

Billie Eilish managed to change his mind, however. After failing at a round of The Office trivia, Wilson challenged the singer to go and rewatch the show for the 16th time, so that she could do better in the next round.

The full interview can be watched on SoulPancake's IGTV channel on Instagram.

No clip. A link to a 45 minute clip, for those who want to hear Will I Lash for 45 min. A clip from another article. And lots of ads for shitty cell phone cart racers and other virginal anime bullshit. Awesome

@naruto945: So what?

I can walk around with a pen up my nose for a year too, but people can still ask me wtf I'm doing.

@Christine_K: Except everyone knows why GameSpot are covering other media.

No one knows why you'd walk around with a pen up your nose.

@naryanrobinson: which still has absolutely no relevance with how long this has been going on- which was the first thing brought up.

So you're not even being consistent with your own "logic". It's almost as if you're some uneducated tweener who just wanted to snark.

@Christine_K: Actually I'm just pointing out how nonsensical your comparison is. There's no need to get defensive just because no one else thought the pen-up-your-nose comment was smart and funny. And he was just pointing out that GameSpot have been doing this for ages, way more than a year actually.

So your original question was, why is this on GameSpot.

And the answer is, because this is what GameSpot does.

If you're unclear about anything so far, be sure to let us know.

@naryanrobinson: No, you literally answered a question no one had asked- and now you're being petulant because I called you on it.

Educational level still showing here.

Rainn Wilson is talented and hilarious. Billie Eilish not so much.

@edwardnygma: have you ever listened to her music or do you know a lot about her as an artist? I don’t personally but I think people parroting random internet opinions is pretty cringe.

@naruto945: Save your fingers. My only hope for him is that he actually is 12.
