NBC and NASCAR Use This Nick Offerman Song to Get Us Fired Up (Video)
NBC and NASCAR are betting that even if you’re not a fan of motorsports, you just might raise an eyebrow at the vocal stylings in this Nick Offerman song. The man also known as Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation starred in a hearty two-minute song about how NASCAR’s just what this country needs. It’s a natural fit for the mustachioed woodworker, and now that Parks and Recreation has filmed its final day, this guy’s got some time on his hands.
Sure, he’s been beating this persona into the ground, but it’s pretty funny, and this Nick Offerman song is almost hypnotic. It might not compel you to tune in to watch NASCAR, but I’m guessing you’re not going to forget that it’s on NBC.
Take a look at the video:
It’s sometimes annoying to hear that the country is becoming a watered-down Twit-ified version of what it once was, but when Ron Swanson’s breaking the news, we can’t help but listen.
