Comedian Billy Eichner recruited his Parks & Recreation co-star Amy Poehler for another hilarious video. In this one, he tries to convince random people that the former Saturday Night Live star is really rapper (and prolific collaborator with pop stars) Pitbull.
The sketch is part of Eichner’s popular Billy on the Street, in which he yells at poor New Yorkers he encounters on the street. He worked with Poehler during the holiday season for a Jimmy Kimmel Live! clip. In that sketch, they paid people $1 to sing a Christmas carol with them.
In this one, Eichner had Poehler wear a Pitbull mask. At first, some people actually think it’s the “Timber” rapper, but of course, it’s not. “It’s AMY POEHLER!!!” Eichner yells. They actually meet one busy guy who appears to have no idea who Pitbull or Poehler is.
Eichner recently joined Parks & Recreation as Craig, a temperamental guy who joins the office after Eagleton and Pawnee merged. Poehler plays Leslie Knope, a performance that has earned her a Golden Globe.
Parks & Rec airs on NBC on Thursdays. It was renewed for a seventh season.
