Aubrey Plaza is a smartass comedienne who is both a brilliant, witty mind who doubles as a frat boy’s dream come true. She also happens to be clinically obsessed with Miami Heat star Chris Bosh — I’m not a doctor but that’s my diagnosis. You don’t need a doctorate to realize the Parks and Recreation actress has an obsession with Bosh, you just need access to her Twitter feed.
Bosh guest starred on Parks and Recreation this past week which meant Plaza finally got to meet the object of her social media lust and as Vulture helps point out, she got really awkward about it.
Per Vulture’s interview with Plaza about meeting Chris Bosh:
“Big mistake. He comes in the hair and makeup trailer and I say, ‘Hey, I’m Helena. I’m going to do your hair.’ I’m thinking that he’s going to go, ‘Oh, it’s you!’ and instead, he went, ‘Hi, nice to meet you.’ He sat down, and I was like, ‘Well … you look really good, Chris. I guess we don’t have to buzz anything or edge you up. Or, maybe, do you want me to edge you up?’ He was like, ‘No, no, I’m good.’ He said it was really nice to be there and he was being really polite, and he literally didn’t know who I was. So I kept the bit going, and I kept doing more outrageous things so that he would get a clue that it was me joking around. I picked up this Afro wig and I was like, ‘What about this? How about this fake mustache?’ and he just kept staring straight down at the floor, probably thinking to himself, ‘Wow, the hair department on this show is really crazy. All I want to do is get out of this trailer.’ The whole time I’m thinking,Well, I’ve done it so long now that I actually think it would be more awkward if I took my glasses off and went, ‘It’s me!’ That would’ve been weird.
Basically, Plaza thought that Bosh would know who she was from either her stand-up, her starring role on a hit NBC sitcom or her Twitter stalking of him.
Bosh didn’t and Plaza had to play it off the same way we all have to when we have at someone we think is waving back at us but it really waving at the guy behind us. Stay tuned to Plaza’s Twitter feed for more obsessions about the man who guest starred on her show, got his hair done by her and still doesn’t know who she is.
