Nick Offerman shows his holiday spirit while sitting by the traditional Christmas Yule Log, maintaining a comfortable silence and keeping the straightest of faces.

Perpetuating the long-standing tradition of Yule Log videos, Offerman gives his own version—balancing a soothing mix of warmth, relaxation, and manliness. Following a 10-second montage of Offerman doing various holiday things is 44 straight minutes of the Parks and Recreation actor sipping whisky in front of a crackling fireplace. 

The actor looks cozy by fire, perched in his armchair, a glass of single malt scotch in hand, and wearing a plaid shirt under a tan blazer and dark jeans. Much of the time, he wears his signature frown, eyebrows knitted and all. The times Offerman looks straight into the camera almost makes you feel like he’s staring into your soul.
