Aziz Ansari holds hilarious Reddit AMA: our 6 favorite moments

Aziz Ansari loves him some Reddit; he even used it as a research tool for his book, Modern Romance, which came out Tuesday. He made himself available—slightly late, due to a shoot—on Friday to face the world and field any question. No topic remained untouched, including his fervent love of pasta and tacos. Here are our six favorite moments from it.

If the Parks and Rec cast were superheroes….

Apropos of Chris Pratt’s star turn in Guardians of the Galaxy, Ansari was asked which superhero he’d play—he went with X-Men’s Bishop. But he took it a step further: He doled out characters for some of his ex-colleagues—but not for Jerry.

Speaking of Jerry…

His best memory from the Parks and Rec set.

This might break your heart.

SUCH a Jerry move.

His very sage advice on playing “the game.”

Real talk.

Li’l Sebastian is the hero we deserve and need.

We miss you in the saddest fashion.

A warning: Always be aware of your surroundings.

Especially in school.

Throw this song on your mixed tapes, guys (and gals).

Don’t ever discount the influence of NE-YO.

Sift through the full AMA over at Reddit.
