Arizona AD stars in promotional Office Space parody

The summer of stellar Arizona football parody videos continued Wednesday amidst the Wildcats' preparation for their second game of the season against Grambling State this upcoming Saturday.

Arizona made waves with its hilarious Gladiator-themed preseason hype video featuring head coach Rich Rodriguez playing the titual role held by Russell Crowe. On Wednesday, it was athletic director Greg Byrne taking center stage in a parody of one of the most memorable scenes from the 1999 comedy Office Space.

Byrne, dressed up as the character Bill Lumbergh, equipped with a "World's Greatest Ad" mug, stops by a "worker's" cubicle to let him know he needs him to make it out to Saturday's game and stay the whole time so that he doesn't miss any exciting plays, adding "that would be great."

This is the second time in the past year that a football program has given its take on an Office Space scene, as Houston also provided this entertaining video this past February.

Decide for yourself which one takes the top spot.
