I used to wonder how they decided which movies should be up for the Best Editing Oscar. What was the difference? Editing was always transparent to me - I never really took much notice of it. Except in Armageddon, maybe, when I remember wanting to do physical harm to whoever snipped together those wildly frenetic asteroid action sequences. But I digress... I guess I just never really valued the contribution a good editor makes to the overall viewing experience.

And then I saw this short video.

If you're a fan of the Office (U.S.), it's a must-see. And the editing? Now I understand. I can't imagine how much time went into hunting down all of this footage and synching it all up. Fine work.
