When thinking of incredible business leaders, Michael Scott from the cult comedy The Office is likely low on the list. But after watching the 100 Thieves house tour, that’s exactly who Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag reminded Ryan ‘Fwiz’ Wyatt of.
While many think of Nadeshot as the cool owner of 100 Thieves, who create some of the most popular esports streetwear and apparel on the market, his appearances in 100 Thieves content often show his extremely likeable goofy side, much to the enjoyment of viewers.
That rang true for YouTube Global Head of Gaming, and longtime friend of Nadeshot, Fwiz, who hilariously compared him to bumbling Dunder Mifflin Regional Manager Michael Scott from The Office, tweeting: “Watching clips of Nadeshot acting like a real Michael Scott to 100 Thieves employees and team members has made my entire week.”
In a hilarious video uploaded to the 100 Thieves YouTube channel, Nadeshot can be seen giving fans a tour of the new team house, with some incredible interactions with staff and players, including the former CoD pro begging his team to win him a trophy while they tried to practice.
Viewers witnessed the 100 Thieves CEO hilariously ask what position Joseph ‘JungleJuice’ Jang currently held at the company, finding out he had been moved up to assistant coach of the LoL team.
“Oh, Joe got a promotion!” Nadeshot laughed. “I didn’t do that! I’m glad you did, you do a lot of great work for 100 Thieves. That’s a bad look, we should keep that in there.”
Clip starts at 11:04 for mobile users.
An awkward encounter with star League of Legends players Bae ‘Bang’ Jun-sik also had fans in stitches, as the confused Korean asked Nadeshot to explain his quip that he was “dressed like money.”
Michael Scott, the bumbling regional manager of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in the comedy mockumentary The Office, is revered by fans of the show for the incredibly funny, but often cringe-worthy moments that delighted viewers for seven seasons.
While it’s severely unlike that Nadeshot has, or even wanted to, look at Michael Scott as a figure to model his management style from, his goofy jokes and positive attitude in the face of coworkers are definitely reminiscent of Dunder Mifflin’s head honcho and the incredibly popular show.
How much further Nadeshot takes his Michael Scott comparison remains to be seen, but don’t be surprised to see 100 Thieves giving out their own version of the ‘Dundie Awards’ in the future.
