Ron Swanson Has Some Important Thoughts on ‘The Most Interesting Man in the World.’

Nick Offerman (who plays Ron Swanson on Parks & Rec) is a national treasure. Every time he opens his burly, mustachioed mouth, beautiful gems just seem to tumble out. That’s as true in his frequently hilarious book, Paddle Your Own Canoe, as it is in a recent podcast he did with Chris Hardwick of Nerdist fame. The whole interview is full of delightful quips, but most telling is this exchange about Offerman’s thoughts on Dos Equis’ so-called “Most Interesting Man in the World.”

I try not to take umbrage when I hear this sort of thin tapestry they’re trying to weave in that ad campaign. But I do like to think that the Dos Equis guy maybe would shine my shoes. Or I would drop my car off for him to detail. He’d do a fine job. He’d look into my rear-view mirror and mutter things to himself like, “Someday, you will drive a car like this. If you can step up into a more delicious cerveza.”

That’s right, NBC. This is the sort of genius you’ve sidelined till next year. Hope you’re happy …
