After 'The Office' cast shows love for LSU, university extends gameday invite
BATON ROUGE - LSU has extended an invitation to the cast of the iconic television sitcom 'The Office' after the show's stars voiced their love for the Golden Band's most recent halftime performance.
In a halftime show that has gone viral since it debuted during the Tigers' home game against LA Tech, LSU's band covered a variety of themes from hit television shows including 'Parks and Recreation', 'Game of Thrones' and, of course, 'The Office'. It's the latter which has garnered a response that no one could have anticipated, including shout-outs from the stars of the immensely popular sitcom.

We want you in Tiger Stadium Oct. 20th for @LSUBands' “Binge-Watch” halftime show encore pic.twitter.com/wylwaQcHBz
The encore performance will fall on Oct. 20, the night LSU takes on Mississippi State.
It's unclear if the busy actors will find time to make the trip. But for now, our fingers are crossed that the fine folks of Dunder Mifflin can make their way down.
