‘The Office’: Watch Dwight Get ‘Matrix’ Pranked in the Finale’s Unaired Opening

NBC / Peacock

One of Jim’s biggest Dwight-targeting pranks was never released to the public… until now.

An unaired cold open from The Office‘s season six series finale has been released online, showcasing quite the elaborate prank manufactured by Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer).

Dwight (Rainn Wilson) unwittingly becomes a Neo of sorts, as he begins to experience “glitches”, is contacted by someone via his computer, and soon uncovers that The Matrix is, in fact, real. He soon meets Dorpheus (yes, with a D), who eventually offers him two pills to choose from. Taking on the role of Dorpheus (Morpheus’ brother) is Hank the security guard, played by the late Hugh Dane.
