April Ludgate Reacts to Aubrey Plaza’s MTV Movie Awards Stage Crashing… in GIFs

Aubrey Plaza did a strange, strange thing during Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards. Presumably to promote her upcoming film The To Do List (which she had scrawled across her chest), Plaza rushed the stage while Will Ferrell accepted his award for Comedic Genius and tried to steal it from him. Ferrell played along — sort of — but Plaza looked dejected all the same once she was safely back in her seat. 

Whether it was a planned stunt gone awry or a moment of ill-advised drunken enthusiasm, Plaza’s spotlight stealing was clearly the lowlight (in a love to hate it, kind of way), of the night. And no one would have more disdain for Plaza’s social awkwardness than her misanthropic character from Parks and Recreation, April Ludgate.

Here we chronicle April’s reaction to Plaza’s faux pas… in GIFs.
