How B.J. Novak Proved That Book Trailers Can Be Awesome

The world needs more book trailers!

Posted on

Nearly two weeks before B.J. Novak debuted "One More Thing: Stories And Other Stories", he released a trailer for the book

View this video on YouTube

The opening scene is Mindy Kaling (speaking in French) talking to a few friends over a meal about how chic it is to be an author

MINDYYYY!

MINDYYYY!

One of her French friends even puts a chic twist on the actual name of her book "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)"

The black and white, the setting of their dining, the french language, so far this book trailer is VERY chic.

As B.J. is admiring Mindy from outside the restauraunt, a random fan of The Office asks for a photo

Who didn't love Ryan?

The fan quickly snaps a photo, thanks B.J. and scurries off to continue on with his day

Mindy and her friends see the fan take a picture with B.J. and begin to laugh at him

We then see a flashback of B.J. hard at work writing his book

Lots of smoke, lots of typing, lots of writing!

To no surprise, when the camera goes to the desk, we see several photos of B.J. and Rainn Wilson together

I think we should call this ship Brainn? Or Rainnjamin? Am I right or am I right?

This may just be the cutest off screen couple from The Office...EVER

B.J. proceeds to pick up one of the photos of him and Rainn...

And begins to tell him, with much love, that he has finished his book...

And that he can now go impress Mindy

We then are brought back to current time where B.J. goes in and sits down at Mindy's table, looking like the ultimate chic author studly stud

Like I said, the ultimate ~studly stud~

Mindy goes on to acknowledge that B.J. has apparently written a book of his own

She also goes on to question whether or not the world really NEEDS more books

The world can never have too many books authored by B.J. Novak, I swear it.

There's even a cute little "That's what she said" joke slipped in

Mindy then adorably breaks character to ask if B.J. he has seen the new GQ cover with Rihanna on it

If this isn't a typical Mindy moment, then I don't know what the hell is.

Angrily, B.J. asks Mindy if she could just continue to stay in character, explaining the whole idea of the book trailer

"Can you stay in character for like, one second?"

"Can you stay in character for like, one second?"

Ending the chic book trailer, on a quirky and hilarious note.

If everything about this book trailer didn't make you want to immediately go purchase B.J.'s book, you either weren't watching or need to seek treatment for lacking the ability to digest the works of the ultimate star that is B.J. Novak.

We couldn't ask for a cuter pair of soup snakes to star in the greatest book trailer.
