Eleanor Shellstrop lives in the same universe as Leslie Knope 😱



Ads on the back cover of Eleanor’s copy of Celebrity Baby Plastic Surgery Disasters are overt nods to the bygone, Emmy nominated series Parks and Rec. The first, an ad for “Clyde” by Parks and Rec cologne tycoon, Dennis Feinstein. 

Another shocking revelation: Feinstein is played by Jason Mantzoukas who also plays good Janet’s boyfriend on TGP. Which begs the question…



My Theory: Dennis Feinstein, a notoriously horrible person, is in The Bad Place, where he’s doomed to a life of Mindy St. Claire coke parties and wind chimes instead of dude-parts. 

Darren’s discovery sparked quite the thread of TV conspiracy theorists.
