Al, 68, recalled meeting The Office stars Brian Baumgartner, Angela Kinsey, and Craig Robinson at a convention that honored the hit NBC show in Scranton, Pennsylvania.

The meteorologist, who was wearing a baseball cap, beamed in the photo as he posed alongside the three TV stars.

More than a decade later, Brian appeared on Today’s 3rd hour and was seen rustling up a chili in a live cooking demonstration.

Brian’s character in The Office Kevin Malone was famous for spilling a huge vat of chili.

Al shared a photo of the demonstration and the throwback picture in a touching post on Instagram.

Some fans told Al that they also attended the convention, while others gushed over the picture.

One viewer said: “Love this!!! From a Scranton girl.”

Kate Flannery, who played Meredith Palmer in The Office, chimed: “I was there! We’ll always have Scranton.”

Baumgartner posted on Instagram that it was “crazy” he hadn’t aged after sharing the two snaps.

Viewers also took the time to say how much they enjoyed Tuesday’s show.

Last month, the Today Twitter account shared a clip of Al interviewing Law and Order SVU star Mariska Hargitay in 2001.

The beloved meteorologist underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2002.

The weather presenter is dressed in a gray pinstripe suit with a blue shirt and a patterned tie as he talks to Mariska about her role as Olivia Benson in Law & Order: SVU.

The 18-second clip began with Al asking Mariska: “Are you ready to be in here for the long haul?”

“Yeah, I sort of see what life throws at me and I’m so happy to be here,” she replies.

“I sort of trust the process, who knows where I’ll be in three years, but I love New York and I love this character and I love my cast mates, so I’m pretty happy right now.”

The Twitter video was captioned: “Mariska Hargitay told Al Roker in 2001 that she didn’t know where she would be on
@lawandordertv in three years, but that she loved playing Olivia Benson.

“Well, 22 years later, she and the show are still going strong — we love to see it!!!”

Viewers were left wowed by the clip as one fan said: “The transformation of Al always amazes me.”

Al often shares videos of himself working out and sharing some motivational words as he does so.

A day after celebrating the 20th anniversary of his surgery, he posted a clip of himself on a treadmill.

He told his followers: “Ah, the temptations. Ball of confusion, that’s what the world is today.

“But if you take care of yourself and the ones around you, make sure you do that.”

The meteorologist was among the stars that promoted the NBC segment Start Today fitness program throughout February.

Al returned to the morning show in January after being twice hospitalized with blood clots.

He said it was “good to be alive” after his health scare.
