NBC has given BuzzFeed a first look at the new Parks and Recreation webisode, "The Hapley Group," which looks at Pawnee's (very) late-night cable access news magazine program of the same name.

Airing from 2:45 to 6:15 a.m., The Hapley Group has local newscaster Perd Hapley (Jay Jackson) welcoming some of Pawnee's most recklessly opinionated pundits — including Pawnee Today's Joan Callamezzo (Mo Collins), Crazy Ira (Matt Besser), The Douche (Nick Kroll), and a new character, conservative firebrand Mike Patterson (Seth Morris) of Eagleton Now — as they discuss the hot topics of the day. In this case, these titans of thought debate a ban on public smoking, the Olympics, and Obamacare.

Not surprisingly, Joan Callamezzo had some strong thoughts on the public smoking ban in Pawnee, Ind.

Perd did not.

And there's even a commercial for the Pawnee Farmers' Market After Dark and the infamous Chardbodies.

You can watch BuzzFeed's first look at Parks and Recreation's "The Hapley Group" below.

Parks and Recreation airs Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on NBC. New episodes return on Feb. 27.
