If there were an Emmy category for gag reels, Parks and Recreation would sweep every year, with Chris Pratt taking home a trophy for Best Male…Blooperer*?. And season five’s gag reel is yet another excellent addition into the Parks and Rec gag reel pantheon.
Some favorites include:
— Chris Pratt turning an ice cream cone into a disturbingly realistic approximation of a fleshlight.
— Jason Manzoukas as Dennis Feinstein informing Ben that a perfume is called “Insert” because it’s been inside someone.
— Adam Scott getting slapped clear across the face.
— Jenny Slate feeling gassy.
— Nick Offerman’s delightful, cherub-like laugh.
Not for nothing, either, but it’s nice to know that when Aubrey Plaza is going off-script, the first place she tends to go to is overtly sexual.
Stick around to the end for a killer line from Rob Lowe even though nothing…nothing can beat Pratt’s Kim Kardashian joke from last year’s gag reel.
