Y’know, Office Space is one of my favorite movies. It feels like there’s not a wasted moment or line of dialogue in it, just pure comedy gold throughout its entire running time.
I think many would agree that one of the funniest characters in the film is the strange, neurotic and creepy Milton. Laid off years ago, he continues to receive a paycheck through a glitch in the payroll system. He’s also obsessed with his red Swingline stapler and ends up making good on his threat to set the building on fire. What a card!
So yes, Dog Martian Milton is definitely a nod to Office Space Milton, although now that I think about it, Dog Martian Milton would never set the building on fire. He would probably just quit and leave it at that.
