VIDEO: Cubs And White Sox Fans Craig Robinson And Nick Offerman Star In Another Great New Era Commercial

If you're the type of person who thinks less of an actor once they get typecast, perhaps you won't dig this terrific New Era commercial featuring TV's Nick Offerman and Craig Robinson speaking in hypotheticals about Chicago baseball, specifically what Offerman (a Cubs fan) would give up for the North Siders to finally win the World Series. It's impossible to watch and not see Offerman as Ron Swanson, his mustachioed woodworking, whiskey guzzling man's man from NBC's wonderful sitcom "Parks and Rec", brought to you by the same hyper-intelligent and hilarious folks who created one of the greatest sports blogs ever, Fire Joe Morgan.

But if something like that bothers you, it's really unfortunate. This is a great commercial, chalk full of Swansonims about deep dish pizza, wrestling brown bears and skinny dipping in Lake Michigan. Check it out, after the jump...

We can't think of a better way to gear up for Cubs v. White Sox at Wrigley this weekend. Should be fun.
