“That Would Be Great” is an image macro series featuring the character Bill Lumbergh from the 1999 comedy film Office Space. The captions typically mimic the character’s non-confrontational speech with various requests ending with the expression “That’d be great.”
The film Office Space was released on February 19th, 1999, in which the protagonist Peter Gibbons (played by Ron Livingston) is repeatedly exploited by his boss Bill Lumbergh (played by Gary Cole), a stereotype of a corporate manager who focuses on pointless paperwork and asks employees to work over the weekend.
