Cleveland Browns release parody of 'The Office' intro

On Thursday, the Cleveland Browns' official Twitter account posted a parody video of the hit TV show, "The Office."

CLEVELAND -- For the Cleveland Browns, it's almost time to go back to work.

Perhaps that was the message the team was trying to send on Thursday, when its official Twitter account posted a parody of the intro to the hit TV show, "The Office." Or maybe the Browns were just trying to have some fun before the rigors of training camp begin next week.

Either way, here's the video, which features several callbacks to the NBC classic.

Among the players featured in the post were new quarterback Tyrod Taylor, wide receiver Jarvis Landry, punter Britton Colquitt, running back Duke Johnson, rookie tackle Austin Corbett, guard Joel Bitonio, tight end David Njoku, defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah and linebacker Joe Schobert. But perhaps the best part of the parody comes when a picture of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger can be seen being shredded before defensive end Myles Garrett -- dressed as Dwight Schrute -- is ultimately revealed as the perpetrator.

Based on his Twitter activity, it appears the No. 1 pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, is an avid 'Office' fan.

This summer, there have been plenty of cameras around Berea, with HBO placing a spotlight on the team for the upcoming season of "Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cleveland Browns." On Wednesday, HBO released the newest trailer for the upcoming series, which will debut on Aug. 7 -- although it didn't come with as much fanfare as the Browns' most recent post.

Browns training camp is currently slated to kickoff on July 26.
