Parks and Recreation actress Aubrey Plaza seemed to be channeling her inner Kanye when ran onstage and interrupted Will Ferrell.
At Sunday’s MTV Awards, Ferrell (Casa de Mi Padre) was onstage accepting the Comedic Genius Golden Popcorn award when an apparently drunk Plaza walked onstage with a drink in her hand and the title of her new movie, The To Do List written across her chest. Even Peter Dinklage (who was onstage at the time) stood there perplexed.
During an odd tug-of-war over the popcorn trophy, Ferrell asked the audience “What’s happening?” Plaza eventually let go and just walked offstage back to her seat.
Ferrell jokingly announced, “Just like during rehearsals,” as if the entire awkward encounter was planned.
It is rumored the half-Puerto Rican actress was forced to leave after the incident.
She later tweeted, “Thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned!”
In 2009, West stormed the stage when Taylor Swift was giving her acceptance speech after winning Best Female Video, saying, “I’m sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.”
Both Swift and Beyoncé had cameras on them and both were stunned and clearly uncomfortable about the situation.
Way to go, Aubrey. You “Kanye-d” Will Ferrel.
