You know, this would be the best show on television even without Creed, but he really elevates it into something else. "It's possible that a man may have... slipped in there. I would have no way of knowing."

Rewatching Email Surveillance, I noticed that Creed shows up at Jim's party wearing the same ratty shirt he would later give for Secret Santa. Awesome.

Every time Creed speaks, it always seems to raise more questions than answers.

Sep 23rd 2006

His talking head was my favorite scene from the season premiere. I still laugh when I think about it. I love how his delivery is always matter-of-fact and straightforward, like we all have sex with multiple partners in rain-soaked fields and can't differentiate between genders, so clearly we must understand what he means...

Gah! That's almost funnier than the talking head itself.

Seriously though, Creed is so awesome. I always look forward to his little part in each episode because I just know it'll be classic.

There was this great moment in one of the commentaries for S2 when someone (I think Mindy Kaling) says something along the lines of: "So over the season we've established Creed as a homeless, mung-bean eating kleptomaniac who was in a band, spent some time in Hong Kong, and has an extra toe." Of course, he's actually missing a toe, but that's why I'm a rabid fan and Mindy is a writer too busy to remember irrelevant details.

Anyway we can add "experimented sexually in the 60s" to Creed's list of credentials.

Sep 24th 2006

Have any of you guys read information about the real Creed? I mean, his life is nothing like Office Creed's, but it's still pretty wild. It really makes me wonder if some of the stuff he says is based on fact...

(other than the band)

Oct 2nd 2006

There’s my girl. I noticed you handing out some shekels. How would one get on that train?

I had never heard the term shekels before and thought it was some weird slang Creed made up when he was rolling around in the mud and rain in the '60s. Turns out it's Israeli currency. The Office - makes you laugh and expands your vocabulary.

As bizarrely brilliant as Creed has been these last two episodes, I think he is best in small doses and he is at his best popping up when you least expect it. The writers need to walk the fine line between keeping the air of mystery around him and overusing him.

Oct 2nd 2006

JLJ, I agree. Creed shines brightest with the bizarre one-liners. Sometimes, his moments will just complete the episode for me. Maybe one Creed-based plot line would be nice, but Creed is a mystery, and one that I certainly wouldn't want to solve.

Sometimes, his moments will just complete the episode for me.

"I run a small fake I.D. company out of the back of my car"

Apr 28th 2007

"... with a laminating machine I swiped from the sheriff's station." (Emphasis mine.) Creed will stop at nothing.

Apr 29th 2007

Creed had some great stuff in Product Recall. Probably the most we've really seen of him in one episode.

"That's Andrea, the office bitch" - Classic Creed

Jul 20th 2007

I guess this is the place for this.

A while back there were a couple comments that Creed Thoughts was quickly degrading, and even becoming a parody of Deep Thoughts (I ageed with that), but this week's entry is actually a coherent story, and, I thought, fairly amusing.

Jul 20th 2007

I love one of the deleted scenes where he mentions that he is considered dead and collects money as his own widow. Awesome.

Anyone else here think he was in the special forces at some point?

And this week's is even better. I love how he slips in one completely rational thought into his mess of utter nonsense.

TWSS.

Jul 26th 2007

Those last two installments were a lot better than the stuff he used to post. I really liked that little story.

Oct 8th 2007

Sorry if this is old news, guys, because it looks like it's been up on youtube for a while, but it was just posted to the Office livejournal community and it had to be shared.

Creed in the Grass Roots!

Originally by way of Best Week Ever... Sure, we’ve all fallen in love with The Office’s breakout character, Creed Bratton, the sticky-fingered, sprout-munching 82-year-old hobo who manages to stay just below the Scranton radar. He’s one of the few characters (if not the only one) whose real life persona is perfectly blended with his character’s, making it difficult to draw the line on fiction and reality. Creed the character was a guitarist in The Grass Roots, a band that remained on the Billboard charts for 307 straight weeks in the 60s and 70s. Well, thanks to reader Danielle B., video proof that Creed was in the band (and, in fact, a young man) exists! So check out this clip of The Grass Roots live (introduced by Jimmy Durante), and see if you can spot the toner-headed miscreant in the band. Hint: He’s wearing a striped sweater and lovely neckerchief.

Oct 8th 2007

Awesome. At exactly the 3:02 mark, he gives this look off to the side which is hilarious. Check it out.

Oct 8th 2007

Sweet! How bout those fellas he used to hang with? Have you ever seen so many teeth?

Oct 8th 2007

Point the first: Young Creed is adorable.

A band that remained on the Billboard charts for 307 straight weeks in the 60s and 70s.

Point the second: Is not this statistic really, really impressive, or is it just me? That's six years on the charts, right?

I mean, impressive for a band that's not the Beatles or, um, N'Sync.

Oct 8th 2007

Point the first: Young Creed is adorable.

I know!! And so instantly recognizable as himself-- same expressions, same little mannerisms! This is making me kind of inappropriately attracted to Creed...

And if the "make Creed young" task on Dunder-Mifflin Infinity hadn't just ended, you know I'd be decking mine out in a stripey sweater and a dashing little neckerchief.

(Who else is weirded out when the lead singer starts whispering about how he's got to feel her inside of him? um.)

(Who else is weirded out when the lead singer starts whispering about how he's got to feel her inside of him? um.)

I totally just woke my husband up laughing at this. I agree. Very strange indeed. And how frustrating is it that the camera loves the other two guys...you only get a shot of Creed for a few seconds on any of the clips on youtube. That suuuucks.

Oct 8th 2007

It wasn't frustrating for me that the camera loved the second singer. One-two-three-four...

One of my favorite songs. I had never actually seen the Grass Roots, though. Not what I was expecting. They were almost adorable, like dolls.

Oct 30th 2007

I just found out that Creed adlibbed the "Devon is terrible. No ones going to miss him. Ha-ta-ta-ta-ta". That always creeped me out. He also added the chips falling out of his sleeve in Casino Night.

Oct 30th 2007

Where did you hear about that?

Oct 30th 2007 edited

A press conference video from the convention. Here you go.

Oct 30th 2007

Stupid guy on the Creed video pronounced Spokane "spo-kayne". It's actually pronounced "spoke-ann". The person who sent in that question probably went from really excited to kinda pissed before it even got asked.

Oct 31st 2007

He also probably says other stuff wrong, like "Oree-gone." Idiot.

Creed Bratton of 'The Office' records new album in Nashville

If you've seen an episode of NBC's popular sitcom The Office, you've no doubt noticed scene-stealing nutcase Creed Bratton, portrayed, funnily enough -- by Creed Bratton, a veteran musician and member of the Grass Roots ("Midnight Confessions").

Bratton's still making music, and next month he'll release a new album entitled Bounce Back, which was recorded in Nashville with producer Jon Tiven, including Bekka Bramlett, Jonell Mosser, and Wayne Carson.

Office fans might notice another special guest in the video for Bounce track "Rubber Tree." Office co-star Ed Helms lent some of his banjo-picking skills to the track, but sadly, he didn't get the change to add any scat vocals.

Bounce Back will be released Feb. 8. Find a link to "Rubber Tree" and its music video at Tennessean.com/music
