About (Late) Last Night: Jay Leno surprises office workers with dream 'vacations' [Video]

July 7, 2011 |  8:34 am


It's a slow, slow week for late-night television, with nearly every show taking a prolonged July 4th holiday -- every one, that is, except "The Tonight Show" and "The Late Late Show." During such a sleepy week, it seemed fitting that Jay Leno aired a segment all about vacations.

Last night, Leno paid a (supposedly) unannounced visit to the local branch of Dunder Mifflin, where he (sort of) made a few vacation fantasies come true. First up was Mike, who longed to vacation in Tahiti and was magically transported to ... an empty office decorated with palm trees and a wading pool. Though Mike seemed pretty thrilled by the whole thing, I'm sure he was hoping "The Tonight Show" would have surprised him, "Oprah"-style, with round-trip airfare rather then a pineapple full of macaroni and cheese.

Somewhat luckier was Stacy, an HR manager who dreamed of visiting Paris. No, Leno didn't whisk her away for a six-day, seven-night stay at the Ritz, but he did surprise her with an appearance by her celebrity crush. Watch the clip above to see her priceless reaction.
