Yes, That Did Appear to Be a Howard Eskin Bobblehead On ‘The Office’ Last Night

One of the more enjoyable aspects of the hit television show “The Office” taking place in Scranton, PA is all of the little nods to Philadelphia. Some are a bit more obvious, like Jim meeting with Sixer great Dr. J. Others are tougher to spot and are hidden on some random guy’s desk, like what appears to be a Howard Eskin bobblehead from last night’s episode.

You may recall back in the mid 2000s when the then 610 WIP drive-time host was going through his fur coat period, for some reason there was a limited edition bobblehead of him made, playing off of his “King of Bling” nickname. According to wiki, the first 100 Eskin bobbleheads contained an actual diamond chip in them. The proceeds went to charity.

Howard’s son and fellow CBS/WIP employee Spike caught the above screen cap of the bobble on the show. Now he can cross off “Seeing a miniature figurine of my father in a fur coat show up randomly on a hit national television show” from his bucket list.
