Brian Baumgartner Is Focused; Jeanne Zelasko, Not So Much

Although it had been posted by Jon a couple of days ago, I was finally able to watch actor Brian Baumgartner's tour of the Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch office yesterday evening.

The video was funny and all, but what I couldn't get my head around was the lead-in video by Jeanne Zelasko. As I watched her read her lines, I kept wondering: How big is that cue card? Or is the guy holding the cue card running back and forth behind the camera? Man, watching her eyeballs go back and forth like she was watching a tennis match is awful distracting!

I'm feeling little seasick, myself.

I had the same reaction with Jeanne. Try to hide the fact you're reading just a little, would ya?

Dodgers sign Padilla. Maybe Jeanne was watching out for stray gun fire?

I think her cue cards were attached to that RC plane that got loose in the Ravine last year.

I can't get over how different Brian Baumgartner's voice sounds from Kevin Malone's. It's eerie!

@ Jon W: I do love Jeanne. Maybe this was just a bad day for her.
