Chris Pratt’s been busy promoting the final season of Parks and Recreation, which begins next Tuesday. As part of that effort, he stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! — but it was part of a planned gag rather than a traditional interview.

Pratt shows up at Kimmel’s office because he says he’s booked for the show later that night, and though Kimmel insists he’s mistaken, Pratt asks to stick around for an impromptu interview, promising to share some great anecdotes. Things get pretty weird and awkward, and the sketch totally works thanks to Pratt’s comedic timing and, of course, his enduring charm.

Nailed it.
