B.J. Novak Responds To Mindy Kaling's Super Bowl Commercial & Reaffirms Why Fans Want Them To Date Again
Sunday was the day of all days for football fans, because, duh, it was the Super Bowl. It was also the day of all days for those who couldn't wait to watch new commercials, including Mindy Kaling's Nationwide commercial featuring Matt Damon. The ad follows Kaling as she thinks she's actually invisible, until she realizes she is definitely not. I think Kaling and Mindy Project fans will agree with me that the actress/comedienne will never be invisible to us. Guess what? Kaling's Office co-star B.J. Novak agrees.
During the game, Novak shared an adorable tweet that got fans of the two talking. He posted, "YOU'RE NOT INVISIBLE TO ME @MINDYKALING." Of course, now they are being shipped, again, because that's what happens when a celeb says something swoon-worthy about another star. However, it is a bit different for these two, because not only are Novak and Kaling best friends, they also once dated. Kaling even admitted to Howard Stern that she would have married him if he would have asked, but she also would have said yes to anyone at that time. Eventually, and obviously, they never married and broke up.
As she told Stern,
He's a good friend of mine, yeah. He's my best friend. It was years and years ago that that breakup happened. I was so sad. Not angry, sad. That was the hottest I ever looked 'cause I stopped eating. When I get depressed I stop eating. I was so miserable and so beautiful.
So, now, fans are shipping these two hard, and can you blame them? They're best friends, have adorable banter, are hilarious, and have nothing but great things to say about one another. Unlike their unstable characters on The Office, Kaling and Novak seem to be a perfect match. Even though the two aren't dating (or so it seems), at the moment, Novak definitely has fans talking and pushing for the two to finally make it official. Here's some Twitter proof:
With that said, I'll leave you with this cute photo of Kaling and Novak watching the Super Bowl together.
