The Office aired for nine season on NBC from 2005-2013 and was an adaptation of a BBC series with the same name starring Ricky Gervais.

Largely glossing over the backlash against HQ2 and the outrage that has swirled over taxpayer dollars being used to subsidize the already very rich company, SNL had this week's host, Steve Carell, play Bezos in a sketch that targeted Trump and Trump's previous attacks on Amazon.

"Actually, I don't think so, it was a great experience and I love all this people but I just don't think it's the best idea", Carell stated of his time playing Office manager, Micheal Scott.

Carell went on to try to explain in different terms why it might not work, telling Thompson, "It would be like if they wanted you to reboot 'Kenan & Kel'".

Ed Helms, Jenna Fischer and Ellie Kemper made surprise appearances during Carell's opening monologue, badgering the actor who anchored the beloved sitcom to sign on for a reboot. "You wouldn't have to do all those sad movies anymore", he said in reference to Steve's latest role in the moving drama, Beautiful Boy. "Especially because I need that money, let's get that money Steve". "I think we should just leave it alone".

The Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi group is among the biggest auto alliances in the world, selling about 10 million vehicles a year. The company said it has been providing information to Japanese prosecutors and is cooperating fully with their investigation.

He added: "But sometimes you don't get new data and just reanalyze the situation".

We mean, we can't say we'd be opposed to getting the group back together...

Carell later polled the audience, who responded enthusiastically, and invited the three former Office co-stars to come up on stage so he could make an announcement.

Fischer: Steve, do you remember the last words that Pam secretly whispered to Michael as she left for Denver?

"People who are right a lot, change their mind a lot and they seek to dis-confirm their most profoundly held convictions", Bezos can be seen saying in the video.
