To clear confusion, this is Saudi's m̶o̶c̶k̶b̶u̶s̶t̶e̶r̶ adaptation of The Office. Roughly based on the American adaptation of The Office, itself a derivative from the original British version.

Al Maktab is the Arabic name used in this case, however the English title was also used alongside.

Does the Saudi version of Dwight drive the Chevy Blazer and grow grapes or peaches instead of beets? :D

In all seriousness, it's really cool seeing international adaptations of American things. There was a Middle Eastern attempt at remaking The Simpsons as The Shamshoons and omitted things deemed offensive to Middle Eastern culture, such as replacing Homer's beer with a fruit juice. The attempt was in vain as Middle Eastern people had already seen The Simpsons thanks to international broadcasting and anyone who tuned in to watch The Shamshoons only did so to laugh at it before switching back to Bart's misadventures.

The Shamshoons is just the localization of the Simpsons in the Middle East, it's not a remake.

Unlike the Samsonadzes from Georgia... (though I recall the creator intended it as a "bow before the Simpsons")

As mentioned by Gamer, Shamshoons was a localisation attempt by MBC. However from what I've heard, they botched it so badly that it appealed to neither fans nor casual audience. I never really watched The Simpsons so i dunno.

Generally speaking, depiction of consuming alcohol in media are actually socially acceptable provided that it's either depicting foreigners doing so (i.e social and cultural differences exists) or in the case of locals doing so, not depicting it in a super duper promoting way. This is true with several other stuff...except for nudity & sexual content.

scenes at Moe's must have been fun to watch if they replaced the Duff by fruit juice... :D

it makes me think of the French Simpsons vs the Québec one .. in France they tend to make Homer sound like an absolute annoying idiot while in the Québec one he displays more emotions/feelings, closer to the original one

Boomhauer's girlfriend supposedly speaks like a Parisian instead of a French Canadian. I didn't know the French was bad as well. :)
