Parks and Recreation returns for the second half of its fifth season tomorrow night, and the episode is full of great guest appearances. These two videos give us a look at the "two parties" likely referenced in the title, but neither of the bachelors in question are the one we'd expect. Check them out ahead.

Spoilers ahead!

With Ben and Leslie engaged to be married, that puts Ben in the "bachelor" seat for a big party, but the episode description for "Two Parties" sort of explains why Andy and Ron are the ones being honored during this week's episode.
ANN AND CHRIS PLAN THE PERFECT BACHELORETTE AND BACHELOR PARTIES - Ann (Rashida Jones) throws a bachelorette party for Leslie (Amy Poehler) but her plans are derailed when Councilman Jamm interferes. Chris (Rob Lowe) throws a game night at Ben's (Adam Scott) but things take a turn when he realizes none of the guys ever had their own bachelor parties. Aziz Ansari, Chris Pratt, Aubrey Plaza, Retta, and Jim O'Heir also star.

The first clip below features a team of guest stars as some of the Indianapolis Colts (specifically Jim Irsay, Reggie Wayne and Andrew Luck) make an appearance at Andy's bachelor party.

Meanwhile, should any of us be surprised that Ron Swanson's bachelor party involves large quantities of meat? Of course not. But the appearance by Newt Gingrich is a bit less expected.

Gergich, Gingrich? Same diff!

It's good to see Andy and Ron getting some time in the spotlight at what are clearly perfectly customized bachelor parties to celebrate their awesomeness, but what about Ben? Perhaps we'll see his "game night" bachelor party during tomorrow night's episode, or maybe the planned event never takes place. We'll find out when Parks and Recreation returns tomorrow (Thursday, January 17) at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
