TV’s Ron Swanson, Darryl Philbin Debate Cubs-White Sox Rivalry in New Era Commercial (Video)


Ron Swanson and Darryl Philbin may not hail from Chicago, but the actors that play them do. Parks and Recreation's Nick Offerman and The Office's Craig Robinson both grew up near the Windy City, but take opposite sides on the Cubs-White Sox rivalry.

In a new commercial from New Era — which played on the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry last year with John Krasinksi and Alec Baldwin — the two argue over the merits of their two ballclubs while insulting their opponent's team.

"How old is Wrigley anyway?" Robinson asks. "Do you even have electricity?"

"I've heard that for the White Sox, 'DH' stands for 'don't havetalent,'" Offerman retorts.

The entire exchange is pretty hilarious, and we'll bet there's more to come this year. Check out the first from what is sure to be a great series of ads below.
