Aubrey Plaza, Nick Offerman get into character for new TV ads

Posted on

Aubrey Plaza Newcastle Ad

Newcastle Brown Ale’s Band of Brands campaign got the Aubrey Plaza treatment this week in an ad featuring the Parks and Recreation star. With her signature deadpan delivery and a little NSFW language, Plaza rallied for smaller brands to join the company’s attempt to purchase Super Bowl advertising.

But she’s not the only Parks member getting into character for an ad. Nick Offerman brought his lumberjack charm to a commercial for Lagavulin whisky. There really isn’t anything more Ron Swanson than seeing Offerman effortlessly carry a basket full of whisky bottles and knocking back a glass like it’s Aquafina.

Can we expect an Amy Poehler commercial for Waffle House? A ‘Got Milk’ ad for Chris Pratt? Just more Parks, please.

The final season premieres Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
