Watch Three Hilarious, Olympics-Themed <i>Parks and Recreation</i> Promos

After Sunday’s hot mess of a closing ceremony, it appears that the 2012 Olympics are officially over. Those experiencing withdrawals need not worry, though: NBC’s keeping the spirit of the games alive with three hilarious new promos for the upcoming fifth season of Parks and Recreation.

The clips show Amy Poehler’s Pawnee Park crew recreating the glory of the games with a variety of challenges: eating massive amounts of sausages and potatoes (“bangers and mash”), full frontal chest shaving, and a not-so-evenly matched wrestling battle between Aziz Ansari and Nick Offerman.

Parks and Recreation returns on Sept. 20. Check out the promos below.
