The song starts off with The Office
character Michael Scott unveiling his self-made secret agent film after years of referencing it within the series. He also speaks to somebody who shares the singer's first name.No, Billie, I haven't done that dance since my wife died
There's a whole crowd of people out there who need to learn how to do The Scarn
The Scarn is a dance named after Scott's fictional spy hero. The rest of the song features interpolations of dialogue from Office
characters. Eilish explained to MTV News
"When we made the beat for 'my strange addiction,' it reminded me of the song they play when they do the Scarn dance. I thought that was really funny, so we literally just ripped the audio from Netflix and put it in the song, not at all thinking that they would say yes to it and we'd be able to put it out. Also, it's about strange addictions, and The Office
is mine, so."
