Where does Nick Offerman end and Ron Swanson begin?

Nick Offerman went and made a music video for his Parks and Rec alter ego, Ron Swanson.

Okay, it's not exactly for him. But "My Tales of Whisky," -- expounding on the joys of drinking whisky, as well as other "manly" activities like woodworking -- certainly could work its way into an episode of the NBC sitcom. "My first love is whisky in a jar / And the second this six-string guitar / But you can't play a song and drink whisky / Whether singing in that or in this key / it could all be so grand/ if I had a third hand/ but my doctors decreed that too risky," Offerman croons during the goofy, but catchy, track. 

"Nick Offerman is a man's man. He likes working with wood, he likes wearing plaid and he especially likes drinking whisky," the YouTube video description explains. 

Take it away.
