It’s no secret that Ron Swanson – Offerman’s deadpan character – loves Lagavulin, Last year everyone’s favourite whisky-sipping companion entertained fans with Yule Log: a 45-minute video in which he sits leather chair next to a crackling fire staring silently into the camera accompanied by a dram.

This year, he returns to screens for an entire hour with aptly-named follow-up New Years Eve, which sees him relax with a bottle while a party rages on in the background, and the result is as hilarious as you’d expect.

Countdown to New Year with Swanson in the video below.
