Apple subsidiary FileMaker, which makes the popular “cross-platform relational database” of the same name, just launched a new ad, reuniting several stars from the U.S. version of hit comedy The Office.

Titled “Farm Time,” the ad stars Kate Flannery, Leslie David Baker, and Paul Lieberstein, who play Meredith, Stanley and Toby respectively. It borrows from the format of the failed The Office spinoff, The Farm, and tells the story of a news reporter who investigates a root vegetable farm whose success is attributed to their use of FileMaker.

Check it out below.

Originally, it was thought that this might be part of a more ambitious multi-part Apple ad, starring some of the key actors from The Office. While that hasn’t turned out to be the case, it’s still a fun reunion of the characters in an extended web-only ad that shows off a few of FileMaker’s main features.

FileMaker Go 16, the latest iOS version, is available to download from the iOS App Store now.
