Eilish sampled the "Threat Level Midnight" episode for her "my strange addiction" song because the hit NBC comedy was her strange addiction. B.J. Novak recalls that the episode was a final wish for the departing Steve Carell. “They had to get approval of all the cast that was on it,” including Carell, Novak tells Rolling Stone. “I was fine with it regardless,” Novak adds, “but I was like ‘Wow, bonus: This is a banger.'” Meanwhile, The Office song producer Eve Nelson, who composed the music for the episode, was shocked that Eilish was inspired by her work. “Can’t say enough about that girl,” says Nelson. “She is, to me, one of the finest young artists of today. She takes risks. She’s herself. She marches to her own drummer. I love what she did with that. I thought it was brilliant. I could hear that she got slightly inspired by the beat. I respect and admire her so much. I’m honored that I have anything to do with inspiring Billie Eilish.” ALSO: How The Office looks like around the world.
