Aubrey Plaza’s lost Dora the Explorer audition tape has finally been released! Well, sort of. Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre actress Veronica Osorio, who could pass for Plaza’s twin, impersonates the actress (and her Parks and Recreation character April) and imagines her audition to replace Dora on the hit Nickelodeon show. The cigarette-puffing Osorio nails Plaza’s deadpan humor. ”I was gonna tell stories of my death,” she says with an ominous grin.
The Venezuelan-Italian actress filmed, wrote, and edited the video to pay homage to the Safety Not Guaranteed star, whose UCB Theatre performances she used to watch.
