Who knew sugar could lead to such a downward spiral? “Parks and Recreation” star Aubrey Plaza figured prominently into a new Funny or Die video that looks at the deep, dark turn something as simple as a Ring Pop can take.
At first, the video looks quite a bit like a commercial for the candy, right out of the 1980s. However, when Plaza is presented one as an engagement ring, everything goes horribly wrong as the short follows the life she builds and destroys with her husband. The whole thing is highlighted by a crazed sugar binge, set to Lynnyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird.”
Try looking at a Ring Pop the same way ever again.
