Cubs Fan Ron Swanson and White Sox Fan Darryl Philbin Go At It Again

New Era has created a brilliant campaign involving caricature fans of various teams, sparring with each other about their rivalry. For example, here was the first iteration of a Cubs/Sox battle.

It’s brilliant, in large part, because it spreads around places like this. So, here’s some free advertising for New Era in the form of a hilarious video in which Darryl Philbin (Craig Robinson from ‘The Office’) quizzes Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman from ‘Parks and Rec’) about his Cubs fandom:

    “Joe Ricketts is the founder of TD Ameritrade. He’s really rich, and he really dislikes Barack Obama. He’s working with longtime GOP operative Fred Davis on a way to spend $10 million venting that anti-Obama rage with a series of racial attacks on Obama.”

    What if you had to trade in your car for a pig with a saddle on it?

    Absolutely. That’d be fantastic.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’re right, that’d be awesome, nevermind.

    ^ That’s gold.
