You’re used to seeing Nick Offerman play a gruff character on Parks and Recreation. But in this Red Band clip from The Kings of Summer, you’ll get the added benefit of hearing him drop f-bombs. Like a deep-fried Snickers, they’ve taken a good thing and made it even better.
Directed by JordanVogt-Roberts, the film tells the story of three teenagers who plan to build a house in the woods in order to live on their own. Offerman plays a widowed father of one of the boys. In the clip, he is confronted about his son’s behavior by the local police. Offerman’s character reacts about how you would expect a gruff father played Nick Offerman to react. And while it might be somewhat predictable, that doesn’t make it any less funny. Besides, I’ve never heard the expression “I’ll knock your dick in the dirt” before, so they managed to put a new twist on an old favorite.
