The episode famously features a failed CPR training among the Dunder Mifflin employees. The instructor attempts to show the character Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell, the proper technique by doing chest compressions to the tune of the song “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees’. The song’s tempo matches the recommended 100 beats a minute.
