If you caught the MTV Movie Awards 2013 show last night, you saw “Parks and Recreation” star Aubrey Plaza rush up to the stage while Will Ferrell was accepting the Comic Genius Award.
Most of us thought it was a scripted incident, but Plaza actually was tossed out of the award’s show after the bizarre stunt. What was going on?
Will Ferrell was busy with his acceptance speech when Aubrey Plaza ran up on stage barefoot and tried to take the golden popcorn award from Will’s hand.
Will asked, “What’s happening? Are you OK?”
Plaza answered “yup” and went back to her seat. She had a crazy look in her eyes, but maybe that’s normal for her.
Ferrell went with the bizarre stunt, joking, “Aubrey Plaza, everyone. Just like we rehearsed it. Perfect, it was perfect. Not too long, not too short. Right on the money.”
Aubrey Plaza was later escorted out of the venue by the head of Viacom security during the commercial break.
So what was up with Aubrey? Was she promoting her latest movie? Plaza did have “The To Do List” scrawled across her chest.
MTV reports she was cooperative with security when they removed her from the venue.
The incident certainly makes you think of Kanye West’s infamous stage rush of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
This morning Aubrey Plaza tweeted, “Thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned! #mtvmovieawards #chrisbosh #thesecret.”
