“Parks and Recreation” actress Aubrey Plaza certainly made a name for herself at last night’s MTV Movie Awards. Plaza pulled a Kanye West when she awkwardly interrupted Will Ferrell while he accepted the Comedic Genius Award.
Plaza rushed on stage in an attempt to steal Ferrell’s golden statue with a drink in hand and “#TheToDoList” written across her chest.
“What’s happening? Are you okay?” Ferrell asked. Plaza replied saying “yup” and swiftly returned to her seat in the front row, where she awkwardly spilled her drink in front of cameras. She was then escorted out of the venue by security during the next commercial break.
“Thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned!” Plaza tweeted later that night.
Plaza’s unexpected interruption was an obvious marketing tactic for her upcoming movie, “The To Do List” (and perhaps the result of having too much to drink). “The To Do List” is about a girl who has an unconventional list of things to accomplish before she heads to college. The movie will hit theaters in August.
