Justin Bieber & Craig Robinson: 3 Highly Plausible Reasons Why They Hung Out

Are Justin Bieber and Darryl Philbin Craig Robinson BFFs?

Most of Justin Bieber’s celebrity partnerships make perfect sense (remaking “Honey” with Selena Gomez, having studio time with protégé Madison Beer, collaborating with Austin Mahone), but his Instagram photo with “The Office” and “Hot Tub Time Machine” star Craig Robinson left us full of burning questions.

What could they be doing together? Are they… Are they at a mall?! Here are three highly probable theories for this odd meet-up… AT THE MALL?!?!

1. Craig’s helping the “Confident” singer on a new track. You know, something Michael Scott can bop to.

2. Justin took the “Which Character From ’The Office’ Are You?” quiz while procrastinating in the studio, got Darryl, and used his celebrity status to fly the actor over for an immediate hangout sesh, just ’cause he can.

3. Or, the year is 2028. An older and wiser Craig wanted to meet JB, and, instead of flying to the Province of Bizzlonia to meet up with Prime Minster Bieber, Mr. Robinson used a device that combined heated bubbles and outdoor leisure with time-bending properties to transport himself to a mall in 2014.

Yep, that’s totally it.
