Little known fact: Long before Aubrey Plaza was April Ludgate or Complex's April/May 2013 cover girl, she was just a teenage hag. No, really, here's proof.
Back in 2008, Plaza starred in a short video called Teen Hag, which was a mock movie trailer aiming to make fun of Teen Wolf. In it, she played a dorky high school-aged version of herself who, instead of going through the physical changes every teen struggles through, finds that she's transformed into an evil hag. Luckily, the Internet is a wonderful place, and the video is still on YouTube for all of us to marvel at.
Really, this clip is actually like an essential piece of pop culture history: It's one of the main reasons Plaza's Twitter handle is @evilhag. The other big reason is her old blog that she ran in college, titled "Salty Sea Hags." She explained that in an interview with Rolling Stone:
I made a video, which is still on YouTube, called "Teen Hag", and that's when it started. It's a parody of "Teen Wolf", but it's about a high school girl who turns into a hag. When I was in college, I had a blog called "Salty Sea Hag", where I did political humor from the point of view of a sea witch living on the bottom of the ocean. My hag thing goes way back.
