Happy Birthday, Aubrey Plaza!

by Intern Christina


Today is the day when my personal favorite and BUST-featured deadpan actress extraordinaire was born: Aubrey Plaza. In honor of her day of birth, here’s a playlist of clips that detail what I think Aubrey’s doing on her birthday.

First, Aubrey is probably going to receive a lot of gifts from other people. But if there’s one lesson that her show Parks and Recreation taught us, it’s this: treat yo self. So on her birthday, she’ll probably hit up a couple places in order to find the perfect gift to herself. Perhaps one of those places will be a feminist bookstore run by Fred Armisen. Wearing a wig. You never know.

Maybe someone else will pick her up an even more perfect gift than she could gift herself. If you’re a friend of Plaza’s and you’re still stuck on what to get her, maybe you should try a video game. After all, she’s never faked an “ork-asm” in World of Warcraft. What could possibly give this girl more pleasure?

If the gifts just don’t do it for her, or if she’s looking for a way to celebrate how stellar they were, Plaza is probably going to want to hit up a nightclub with pal Aziz Ansari. It better have really cool, vintage-y wallpaper, and it better NOT have glowsticks. Oh, and heavy on the house music. The birthday girl wants to get down.

Obviously Aubrey is going to roll mad deep with her posse of celebs to the club. A lot of them will probably be fellow comics and co-stars. Her and Amy Poehler will dance on tables while Donald Glover pops champagne with Rob Lowe to start the party. If fellow funny woman Sarah Silverman can’t make the bash, Aubrey can just imitate her for the next best thing.

In order to leave the club incognito and avoid the paparazzi, Plaza is going to need a mean disguise. Perhaps she can try out one she’s done before, the dangerous femme fatale “Janet Snakehole.” Of course, it may not be the best idea, since the FBI is looking for her due to the fire that consumed her mansion and killed her sister.

But what’s all this birthday hype about, anyway? Aubrey is probably just chilling in her house watching reruns of Law & Order SVU. After all, it’s just another day. She’s going to live forever.
