A supercut is a massive compilation highlighting a very specific element of movies or television. Usually this is used to point out an overused cliché. Sometimes it is used to highlight the idiosyncrasies of a particular artist, usually an actor. These supercuts are usually used to criticize but can also be a celebration.
Parks and Recreation is a sit-com on NBC, set in the Pawnee, Indiana Parks and Recreation department. It is also freaking brilliant, filled with hilarious situations and characters you love and care about. One of these characters is Chris Traeger, played to perfection by Rob Lowe. This is a character that I should have been destined to hate, because it really gets under my skin when people misuse the world literally.
Yet, Chris Traeger misuses it so often that it changes from wrong to right. Check out the supercut for evidence.
Thanks to The High Definite for supplying me with this.
And yes, it was incredibly difficult not to make a “literally” joke in this post. But I’m better than that. And so are you, dear readers. So are you.
