"I'm John Krasinski, and if it isn't clear yet, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing", is how he kicks off this first blast of positivity, filmed in his home and featuring a special appearance by another force for good in the world, his old Office boss, Steve Carell. The tweet went viral, receiving more than three times as many favorites as Krasinski's original prompt.

For John, this has come in the form of YouTube channel Some Good News, which is aimed at providing some of the more positive news out there rather than dwelling on the doom and gloom of the world today - and he's gone viral with his very first video.

John Krasinski has gone on to have quite a career since "The Office" wrapped in 2013. "But through all the anxiety, through all the confusion, all the isolation, and all the Tiger King, somehow the human spirit still found a way to breakthrough and blow us all away". "Most of the memories have to do with things that we shared as a cast", Carell says, while also mentioning the Fun Run episode involving the actor scoffing plates of pasta on a 100-degree day as something that particularly stood out. "People would step back when it was time for other people to shine and celebrate it". "When you came in as Dwight that day - it was insane, watching Jim do Dwight". As fans will recall, Steve left the show during season 7, which made filming the scene where Jim and Michael finally said goodbye "emotional", according to the Jack Ryan star. Krasinski added, "I don't think I've ever laughed harder in my life".

"Listen, I know everyone's talking about a reunion", he continued.
