You Won't Believe Creed Bratton's Amazing Voice Singing on Set of The Office Finale

The actor, who also played Creed Bratton on the NBC comedy, is actually kind of a rockstar!

It's no "That One Night" by Hunter (Jan's assistant), but it'll do.

How to Watch

Watch every episode of The Office on Peacock.

Angela Kinsey, who played uptight accountant Angela Martin on NBC's The Office, just posted a behind-the-scenes video of her co-star Creed Bratton (who played quality assurance manager also named Creed Bratton) singing and playing guitar on set, and he sounds so good. Check out the video farther down.

Based on Bratton's beard, it looks like the clip was taken as the cast filmed the series finale, and from Kinsey's caption, it seems impromptu jam sessions were a regular occurrence on the set of the Emmy-winning show.

"Happy Birthday @creedbratton ! I found this old video on my phone. What a special time we got to spend together. We loved it when Creed played his guitar on the set of The Office," she wrote, also giving fans an update about their friendship today. "@creedbratton I love ya so much! You are my favorite neighbor. 🥰 (yes, we actually live right down the street from each other and he still calls me pumpkin.)" So sweet!

Creed Bratton is an actual singer in real life

The actor got his start in the entertainment business as a member of the band The Grass Roots, which found success in the late 1960s and early '70s. He recorded music and found work in Hollywood, mostly as a stand-in, which is how he ended up in a "non speaking role" in the pilot of The Office.

During the show's second season, he pitched himself as a more fleshed-out character, and got his first lines during the Halloween episode that finds Michael Scott (Steve Carell) struggling to fire him. He nailed the role and was quickly promoted to a guest star, then recurring, then regular, eventually becoming a fan favorite.

Bratton continues to perform live music, incorporating both Creed the man and Creed the character into his shows.

“I want the music to be more than the character,” he told Esquire. “But I can’t be a crusader for that. If they get the music, they get the music. I’m not going to stop being funny and giving them that character because I wouldn’t be there with my music if The Office hadn’t slipped me through the door.”
