office_priusOn NBC’s hit mockumentary The Office, a Toyota Prius was the deciding factor in a battle royale between two employees. Dwight, played by Rainn Wilson, and Andy, played by Ed Helms decided to hold a man war out in the parking lot to decide who would win the affection of fellow employee Angela, played by Angela Kinsey.

Anyways, when Dwight went to face Andy in the parking lot with a sword, he found nobody waiting for him. Instead, a note was attached to a bush. While Dwight stood there reading it, the rest of the employees of Dunder Mifflin watched as Andy quietly approached in his Prius (keeping it under 5mph, of course.). He then surprised Dwight by pinning him to the bush with the fender of his car.

Classic. And just one more reason why the Prius is mightier than the sword.

    I love riding my prius in stealth mode ;) can come in very handy.. also if you’re a “weeds” fan (greatest show on television) there are some excellent shows with the Prius. A must watch.
