Maybe Aubrey Plaza just wanted some popcorn? The Parks and Recreation star, 28, caused a commotion at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards when she tried to wrestle the Golden Popcorn trophy from winner Will Ferrell's hands. Turns out that the odd moment was totally unplanned -- and got Aubrey kicked out of the theater! Watch the clip below to see how it went down.
You know, if she wasn't holding that drink, she probably would have been able to grab the award and make a run for it. On the other hand, if she wasn't holding that drink, she probably wouldn't have had the idea in the first place!
Ferrell, 45, was accepting the Comedic Genius Award when Plaza -- with the name of her upcoming film, The To Do List, scrawled on her chest -- jumped onstage and tried to yank away his trophy.
"What's happening? Are you okay?" asked the unflappable comedian. Plaza did an abrupt about-face and went back to her front-row seat, spilling her drink in the process (just in case there was any remaining doubt about her sobriety.)
"Aubrey Plaza, everyone. Just like we rehearsed it," said Ferrell, soliciting a round of applause for the actress.
Though producers asked Aubrey to leave after her outburst, she was laughing it off come Monday.
"Thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned!" she tweeted the next morning.
Sure enough, everyone is now talking about the time that Aubrey "Kanye'd" Will Ferrell. Is Kanye-ing a thing now? Should we start expecting to see this at the Oscars?
There's a difference, though: Unlike West after his infamous Taylor Swift interruption, Plaza is likely to get high-fives (not dirty looks) from her colleagues. And even though the producers were angry, Plaza's stunt proved that anything really can happen at an MTV awards ceremony -- which we're guessing, in retrospect, makes those same producers pretty happy!
