Aubrey Plaza Is a Sea Hag in This Spooky Video

by Melanie Mignucci

Aubrey Plaza is easily the greatest thing since sliced bread. (We at BUST love her so much we put her on the cover of our October/November 2012 issue!) But before she was breaking hearts and taking names in Parks and Rec, she and a group of co-conspirators made this trailer for Teen Hag, a salty spin on the movie Teen Wolf, “coming to a cave nowhere near you … 6/6/6.”

Plaza basically plays an awkward teenage girl (what else is new) who comes into her own when she turns into a teenaged hag, taking over the cheerleading squad, the school, then the WORLD. As an unabashed fan of Jennifer’s Body, I would totally have watched this movie.

All Plaza/Hag history all seems to originate from this point. In case you were wondering (like I was) why Plaza’s Twitter handle is @evilhag (a hag at hell swamp), she told Rolling Stone that it all comes back to this video. Said Plaza, “When I was in college, I had a blog called ‘Salty Sea Hag‘ [WHICH IS STILL ON THE INTERNET], where I did political humor from the point of view of a sea witch living on the bottom of the ocean. My hag thing goes way back.”

My hag thing.

You guys, is it possible there is no more perfect a concept than a “hag thing?” Is there no more perfect a person than Aubrey Plaza? I’m dead. This is it. There’s nothing left for me anymore. The future of comedy is a void.

Anyway, watch this rare video below, and remember that what’s posted on the Internet stays on the Internet … even for teen hags.

(Also, watch Plaza star in this trailer for a real-life Daria, which, like Teen Hag, tragically does not exist… yet.)

Thanks to Crosstalk, Aubrey Plaza and the universe, for making the concept of having a “hag thing” possible.
