Aubrey Plaza tells Conan O'Brien about her Parks and Recreation reunion birthday

Posted on

TBS

Even as she gets more famous and stars in movies like Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Aubrey Plaza still hasn’t lost her ability to be incredibly awkward on talk shows. Take Monday’s Conan, for instance. The show taped the day after Plaza’s birthday, so host Conan O’Brien naturally asked his guest what she did. Here’s how she responded:

“I usually cry,” Plaza said. “For hours. I think about all the things I haven’t done and all the things I won’t get to do.” 

A flabbergasted O’Brien wondered if this was just Plaza’s birthday routine, or if she was like this every day. Plaza responded by asking, “What is a day, you know? What is time?” 

“I want to kill myself,” O’Brien responded.

Eventually, however, Plaza did admit that earlier in her birthday weekend she recorded an episode of Anna Faris’ podcast, complete with a miniature Parks and Recreation reunion.

“Retta and Chris Pratt were there and they got me cupcakes, and that was very nice,” Plaza said. “So there you go, that was a birthday thing.” 

“Okay, let’s move on,” an exasperated O’Brien said. Watch the clip below.
