John Mayer initially refused to allow his song YOUR BODY IS A WONDERLAND to be used on the US version of hit comedy The Office, but changed his mind after producers explained the hilarious scene.
The song was featured on the show last week (14DEC06) during a scene in which Steve Carell's character Michael Scott butchers the song while singing karaoke.
Mayer calls The Office "one of my favourite shows on television" and writes on his website, "I initially turned the request down, but after thinking about it (and hearing the details on the incredibly funny sounding scene from producer BJ NOVAK), I decided to go for it."
He adds, "Now, I'm not making apologies for my work, but it's safe to say I don't get asked to use 'Wonderland' for strongman competitions and documentaries about aircraft carriers.
"I get asked so people can goof on it."
