“The Office” — like many of our own lives — is playing out on Slack right now.

The creative collective MSCHF has decided to recreate every episode of “The Office” over Slack, according to The Verge. Fans can hop onto a live Slack feed where each channel is dedicated to a specific corner of “The Office” office.

Different aspects of each “Office” episode play out in each individual department. You’ll see what Michael Scott is saying to the whole room in the “General” tab. But you might find something else in the “Party Planning” channel.

Other channels include “sales,” “corporate,” “warehouse,” “diversity,” “World’s Best boss,” “Conference Room” and “Pranks.”

A quick note: Inappropriate messages and images will popup since it is a live Slack Channel. Moderators for MSCHF are trying to keep trolls from spamming the pages, though.

“Since ‘The Office’ aired, the nature of work and office culture has changed drastically, a lot of which is centered around the way we use technologies,” Daniel Greenberg, head of strategy at MSCHF, told The Verge. “This is a live experience by real people Mondays through Fridays, nine-to-five.”

According to Newsweek, the channel is only live during work hours — the typical 9 to 5. So if you’re expecting weekend content, you won’t have anything fresh. You could probably review the older content, though.
