“I like the smell of bacon on a woman.”
There’s no shortage of funny quotes when it comes to Brian Baumgartner‘s character, Kevin Malone of The Office, but here’s a new one… ‘got milk?’
Brian has partnered with the California Milk Processor Board, the creators of the iconic ‘got milk?’ campaign, for a new digital series called, “Never Doubt What You Love.” “I’m just trying to channel you,” Brian tells The Knockturnal‘s Kinsey Schofield.
The series consists of man-on-the-street style interviews conducted by Brian, where regular people defend things that they love like grandmothers and puppies. “Never Doubt What You Love” was semi-inspired by “cancel culture” and people’s resistance to, as of late, dairy milk! Brian along with The California Milk Processor Board wants, “to instill a sense of pride in defending your passions,” says a recent release on their collaboration.
In addition to telling us about his new project with The California Milk Processor Board, Brian talks about his podcast, The Office Deep Dive with Brian Baumgartner, where Billie Eilish was recently a guest. She explained to The Office star that the show is such a calming detox and comfort for her.
We also got some serious gossip on Office fantasy football. Insert Rainn Wilson with the terrible trade here! Despite years of not being in production, The Office remains the number one streamed show in the digital sphere, which inspired Brian’s new book, Welcome to Dunder Mifflin: The Ultimate Oral History of The Office. Brian interviews cast, crew, and fans about what makes The Office so special to this day. Enjoy the interview above.
