Today’s Meditation: Watch Nick Offerman Drink Whisky by a Fire in Silence

Ever wanted to sit fireside with Nick Offerman, sharing a bottle of Lagavulin and the comfortable silence of masculinity? Well, now you can, sort of.


Offerman's latest and greatest accomplishment in manhood is 45 minutes of simple, relaxing, fireside companionship. Not a word spoken throughout. It's just Nick, a burning yule log, a glass, and a bottle. It's the first in a series of Lagavulin videos coming this month.

We could go on and on about his acting talent, the range of emotions he expresses (or suppresses) throughout the video, or the number of ounces we think he knocks back in the video (five, give or take). We could even wonder how many takes they did. But like a glass of fine whisky, some things are just better experienced in silence.
