Michael’s Pyramid Scheme – The Office US

Michael’s Pyramid Scheme  – The Office US


So… Phil recruited me to sell these cards, and now I am recruiting you. Who is this guy again? Don’t worry about Phil,
he drives a Corvette. He’s doin’ just fine. Okay. Calling cards…
are the wave of the future. These things sell themselves. Who uses calling cards anymore? Michael: You know what?
That’s a nice attitude, Ryan. I’m just helping you invest
in your future, my friend. This sounds like a get-rich-quick scheme. Yes, thank you! You will get rich quick!
We all will! Didn’t you lose a lot of money on that
other investment? The one from the e-mail? You know what, Toby? When the son of the disposed king of Nigeria
emails you directly… asking for help, you help. His father ran the freaking country.
Okay? Alright, raise your hands
if you wanna get rich. Alright. No, umm… How is this not a pyramid scheme? Alright, let me explain. Again. Phil has recruited me and another guy. Now we are getting three people each. The more people that get involved, the more people who are investing,
the more money we are all going to make. It’s not a pyramid scheme. It is a…
It’s not even a scheme per se. It’s… I have to go make a call.

  1. You guys notice he only called in the men 😂

  2. Two things stand out for me in this scene. 1. The Puerto Rican flag calling cards. 2. The son of the deposed king of Nigeria emailing Michael.

  3. This was recommended after I watched vice's video about lularoe.

  4. If only Jim would have offered Michael a calling card when he walks off to make a call.

  5. Why are they staring at the camera this show is awful

  6. Why is Michael Scott holding a card with a Puerto Rican flag on it

  7. The reality of schemes like this is they rely on family and friends who have been bamboozled or made some money of it. The people who come at bottom of the scheme are the the ones who get suckered and 'pay' for the scheme

  8. “I have to go make a call.” 💀😂

  9. Oooo i was the 40000th like

  10. what i like about michael and why the show never really worked for me after his character was gone was his heart: he always had the best intentions at heart: he was just naive or just stupid at times. this one for example: once he realized it was indeed a pyramid scheme instead of trying to enlist others to try and make his money back he just walked away.

  11. Wait wtf xD why does it have the Puerto Rico flag xD

  12. When the son of deposed King of Nigeria emails you directly, you help. His father ran a freaking country.. Ok.

  13. My 18 year old self would have hated this video! Me, I laugh at my 18 year old self.

  14. What's a pyramid scheme

  15. When bunch of strangers recruit you into Market America

  16. Дуайт это как Мавроди, так же сделает свою пирамиду, всех обманет и скажет: "Это пранк чуваки, спокуха"

  17. The reason piramid schemes shows the puerto rico flag is because here in Puerto Rico those people dont shut up about their scams . I know cause i live here .people are crazy

  18. * ^

  30. I showed this clip to a primerica kid and he got all mad haha

  31. He was the son of the deposed king of Nigeria, Toby! How do you know that son wasn't a modern day Aladdin, Toby? How do you know? You don't.

  32. This is basically networking

  33. The office will never be as funny as parks and rec

  34. Someone at work tried to get me into a pyramid scheme and a i could remember was this😂😂

  35. Every country and institution and company and organization running this world is a pyramid scheme. Every office and business, pyramid scheme.

  36. I knew selling cards to this guy was a bad idea

  37. I have to go make a call!!! Wow that’s golden

  38. Luckily I don't fall for things like this, instead I work at home in a self-promotional company in the cosmetics industry. 🙂

  39. Thats a trigle not a pyramid so hes right

  40. cough cough lularoe

  41. That was the Puerto Rican flag on those cards. Why is no one else acknowledging that?

  42. Every person from Amway lol. 😂😂

  43. Steve Carell is a legend 😅😅

  44. The way Michael puckers his lips and Jim just looks around awkwardly. I swear the comedic genius behind this show is terrifying. Every little scene has some humorous detail

  45. The Foreign Exchange Market in a nutshell

  46. It's a reverse funnel system.

  47. "I have to go make a call" just in case you didn't watch the clip!

  48. Why does Stanley look so much like Doc from Mike Tyson's Punch Out?

  49. Isnt that tbe flag for puerto rico? Lmao

  50. 0:29 michael's been replying to spam messages 😂

  51. Is this a deleted scene? It’s different from the one in the show

  52. Michael Scott is the best character with autism ever thought of

  53. He should have said "no see, that's a triangle not a pyramid I know geometry"

  54. 1:09 I think Jim almost broke character because the scene was too funny. I don't think he was supposed to smirk there, but maintain a deadpan face.

  55. i have to go make a call

  56. 🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦🇸🇦love from the country of Arabia 🇸🇦♥️

  57. I couldn't draw a triangle that perfect with grid paper and a ruler

  58. Omg those cards are Puerto Rico flag

  59. It's not a pyramid scheme.. it's just a reverse funnel system.. like Invigaron.. 😂

  60. This is the best scene ever in the office and you can’t change my mind

  61. "Quote from a 2 minute clip we literally just all saw"

  62. Ice Poseidon aka Paul Denino was involved in a ponzi Scheme

  63. Shame the Yanks had to copy a theme

  64. The office is such a meme. Makes me want to dress up like Dwight and bother Jim everytime I watch haha.

  65. If you don’t want to get into a pyramid scheme stay away from these 3 companies

  66. 501 kings of Nigeria disliked the video lol

  67. It’s not a pyramid scheme, it’s a triangle (illuminati) scheme. A pyramid is a 3D object, and Jim clearly drew a triangle

    /s

  68. Haha. Just to be honest. There is a fine line between Ponzi schemes, pyramid schemes and multi level marketing. Take a look at your job now… unless you have a small business for lawn services, phone repair, or item flipping, etc. chances are you have a 9-5 that have a leadership scheme that you to can put a triangle around. Military, Corporate, or even retail from the manager to the guest service associate level. It is all a massive pyramid scheme.

  69. Who’s here after attending a pyramid scheme meeting?

  70. The length of his pause made it funny.

  71. The triangle he drew and the sound was unintentional ASMR

  72. What is a pyramid scheme

  73. Oh primerica you heartless bitch

  74. 1:07, and just like that ladies and gentlemen, Jim has saved Dunder Mifflin from being shut down

  75. Okay this is hilarious, but this ain’t how pyramid schemes actually work.

  76. If only huns were that easy to convince

  77. 와 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ 누가 자막달았냐 ㅋㅋㅋ👍👍👍

  78. I like how Dwight was also surprised by the triangle as well

  79. a pyramid scheme peddles a product/service with little or no value.. calling cards may or may not fit that definition, but even with a fantastic product, the downline will always look like that.. Jim didn't prove his point.

  80. a pyramid scheme peddles a product/service with little or no value.. calling cards may or may not fit that definition, but even with a fantastic product, the downline will always look like that.. Jim didn't prove his point.

  81. It is free to call puerto rico lol you do not need a calling card for Puerto Rico because it is a Territory of the United States

  82. It’s a triangle scheme.
    There’s no third dimension.

  83. Love how everyone, especially Ryan is just waiting for Michael to get it

  84. Amway has left the chat

  85. Love how Toby speaks like Milton from Office Space

  86. The only thing that would have made that scene better is if Jim would said to Michael "You should probably use one of these." And hands Michael a card when he said he had a call to make lol.
