Amy Poehler somehow manages to promote “Parks and Recreation” AND successfully trick unsuspecting New Yorkers into thinking she’s Pitbull in this weirdly amusing “Funny or Die” video, because she’s Amy Poehler and she can.
The game takes people from disdain and irritation at the prospect of seeing Pitbull to wonder and excited surprise when they realize: It’s not Pitbull (thank God), it’s Amy Poehler! It’s quite clever. Poehler wears a Pitbull mask, then takes it off and yells excitedly while her “Parks and Rec” co-star Billy Eichner points out it’s not Pitbull, it’s Amy Poehler!
“That’s it?! That’s it? That’s the game?” Poehler says after the first encounter. Yes, yes it is. You’re a genius, Amy.
