Do you hear this, Internet? Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are never, ever getting back together.

On Thursday night, Poehler and fellow comedian Nick Kroll made their “debut as a couple,” to borrow Us Weekly‘s language, at the  AFI Life Achievement Award Gala in Hollywood. The magazine reports that Kroll, who stars on Comedy Central’s Kroll Show, and Poehler have been dating for a few months. Poehler and Arnett separated last September. If you’re a Parks and Rec fan, the takeaway here is that Leslie Knope is getting serious with The Douche! What would Ann say?

On Parks and Recreation, Kroll occasionally guest stars as a Howard Stern-like radio host nicknamed “The Douche” who disgusts Leslie (Poehler) and briefly dated Ann (Rashida Jones). Check out a clip below where Leslie can barely hide her repulsion. Apparently, things have changed.

In addition to his many other Poehler-free credits, Kroll also guest-starred as “Man in Audience” on his new girlfriend’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade, according to IMDb. No clips are forthcoming, but the first person to upload a video of Poehler and Kroll locking eyes way back then wins 100 Internet Gold Stars. Or, at least, doesn’t have to dive into The Douche’s Jell-O tank.
