What Was With the Crappy Green Screen on Last Night’s The Office?

With respect to pen-wrestling Ed Helms, nobody worked harder in last night's episode of The Office than the poor cameraman whose wild pans and zooms were presumably an attempt to obscure the terrible green-screen effect used during Michael and Dwight's fight scene at the garbage dump. It sure was a nice try! People still noticed, though. Would a trip to an actual dump really have been too expensive for NBC's best-performing show? We can put a man on Pandora but we can't send two Dunder Mifflin employees to a landfill?
