‘Parks and Recreation’ Cast Sings “Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian” On ‘Late Night’ (Video)
  |  @   |  

Fresh off the heels of NBC’s broadcast of the one-hour series finale of Parks and Recreation last night, the cast of the long-running sitcom made an appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers to reminisce about their experience filming the final episode, while star Chris Pratt revealed how he thought the series should have ended.

At the end of the night, host Seth Meyers joined in with Parks and Rec co-creator Michael Schur and the cast — Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Aziz Ansari, Rashida Jones, Aubrey Plaza, Nick Offerman, Retta, Jon Glaser, Jim O’Heir, and a guitar-playing Chris Pratt — for a tear-jerking rendition of “Bye, Bye Li’l Sebastian,” complete with lighters held high.

Check out the cast singing on Late Night here below.

The song, which is actually titled “5,000 Candles in the Wind,” is from the 2011 Season 3 finale titled “Li’l Sebastian,” and was written by Andy (Chris Pratt) for his band Mouse Rat as a tribute to Li’l Sebastian, Pawnee’s famous miniature horse that had died. Check out the original song in the video here below with on-screen lyrics so you can sing along.

Parks and Recreation ran on NBC for 7 seasons (125 episodes) from 2009 to 2015 and marked lead Amy Poehler’s jump from Saturday Night Live, where she co-anchored the Weekend Update segment with Seth Meyers, into her own starring vehicle. The sitcom used the a documentary-crew style filming made popular by NBC’s The Office. Unlike some series finales, the one for Parks and Rec tied up all loose ends, leaving viewers satisfied knowing what happened to all their favorite characters. We’ll miss you, Parks and Rec!
