However, fans got a taste of their old camaraderie in a video shared by Krasinski on his X handle. He captioned it, “Reunited and it feeeeels so gooooood!” The video is from a recording session of IF, where Krasinski is talking to the camera about reuniting with Carell “who happens to be a dear friend.” “We worked on this little thing a long time ago,” he says, referring to The Office.

The video then cuts to Carell entering the recording room and hugging Krasinski. They exchange the usual reunion pleasantries like “it's been years,” before Steve looks into the camera and says, “I'm glad we're getting it.” The two then break into laughs, and Krasinski reveals this was Carell's fifth take on staging their reunion. Carell then asks his director for one more.

He steps out again and re-enters when Krasinski is drinking water, which he spits out in surprise. They go all over it again, this time with more energy, telling each other that they “look nice.” The video then cuts to Carell recording his lines as Blue, as Krasinski looks on.
