There’s nothing hipster geeks love more than gaming and Aubrey Plaza, so it made sense when both these elements collided in this wickedly funny Aubrey Plaza World of Warcraft commercial. Nerds everywhere are no doubt jumping for joy.
The Aubrey Plaza World of Warcraft commercial features the Parks and Recreation actress doing what she does best: embodying all that is deadpan and awkward. She explains that her boyfriend got her the online role-playing game for her birthday in lieu of diamonds and urged her to give the popular pastime a chance. She did, and lo and behold she liked it. So much so that she questioned whether she even needed her boyfriend. By the end of the commercial, Plaza is single but more enriched due to her newfound hobby.
Let that be a lesson to all the guys out there: never be less interesting than the gift you’re giving your girlfriend.
