The world already got to discover Chris Pratt’s sublime rapping skills earlier in 2014, but let’s not forget that his bread and butter is as a more conventional singer. Don’t believe it? Obviously, you haven’t seen him as the front man for Mouserat on Parks and Recreation.
After Parks finished filming its final season last Friday, the cast, backstage, and other staff got together for one last series wrap party. And, of course, to sing a tribute to Pawnee’s signature animal, the mini horse Lil’ Sebastian.
And who better to lead the song than Pratt, the man who originated it on the show? With Nick Offerman providing background support on the guitar, Pratt led the room in one last singing of “5000 Candles in the Wind,” and you’d be forgiven if things got a little misty by your computer screen as you begin to accept the reality that this show is going away forever.
