This story is hilarious, especially because I just started watching The Office, and I myself have had my time on Tinder.

Imagine this, you're swiping through potential dates on Tinder. You come across someone and you see someone familiar in photo that they have on their profile, but not someone you know personally - but a celebrity.

You may think "This is definitely a catfish kind of a situation." But in the case that I am going to present to you, it's all totally true. And so funny.

First things first, the language in this is a little NSFW, but I can't help but share.

This girl named Kate, who lives in Manhattan according to her Twitter, was swiping on Tinder and saw James. She also noticed the woman in his photo looked a little familiar. If you don't know who it is, the female is Angela Kinsey, who plays Angela on the hit TV show, The Office.

So naturally, Kate's first reaction was to post the photo on the internet. She thought, ultimately, it could be a catfish scenario.


After Kate posted the photo on Twitter, it blew up and got such a large response, that the actress posted on Instagram a message to her nephew, James.

I would literally die. The Office has consumed so much of my life lately I couldn't help but share this story with you.

How would you feel if you were swiping and saw this? Or if you were in the position of James, would you use your family member as bragging rights to get some dates?
