Park and Rec’s personal Ronald Ulysses “Ron” Swanson, the web’s favourite small-government libertarian, is the newest tv character to go to a online game in a brand new video from gifted YouTube creator eli_handle_b․wav.
Whereas Ron Swanson, performed by Nick Offerman, isn’t the principle character in NBC’s critically acclaimed Parks and Rec TV collection, he has arguably turn out to be the present’s most well-known and widespread character. His reputation on-line comes from his gruff however variety angle, his deadpan humor, and his love of breakfast meals. However Swanson does hate some issues. For instance, he can’t stand the “depressing socialist terrain” of Europe. Hey, fast query: The place is Half-Life 2 set? Oh no!
Ron Swanson’s journey throughout 2004’s Half-Life 2 is one other glorious video from mash-up legend eli_handle_b․wav. The video was uploaded on August 20 and cruelly hidden from me by YouTube’s algorithm till as we speak. However now that I’ve seen it I really feel compelled to share it with you all.
Within the video, Ron Swanson goes on a scavenger hunt arrange by his co-worker and good friend, Leslie Knope. After all, Half-Life 2’s Metropolis 17 being set in Europe means this isn’t a enjoyable journey for Swanson, who has to place up with disappointing towers, zombie assaults, and the annoyingly smug Wallace Breen, aka the human face of the alien invaders. However don’t fear, in the most effective moments of the video, Swanson does what all of us needed to do and punches Breen proper within the face.
I shouldn’t be stunned by how nice this newest eli_handle_b․wav. video is because the creator has turn out to be well-known for his or her online game mash-ups. Earlier this 12 months they blended John Wick with Resident Evil 4 in an equally improbable video. And earlier than that, they created comedy gold by tossing Michael Scott from The Workplace in with Mass Impact’s politics and aliens.
However I’ll admit that this Ron Swanson mash-up is perhaps my favourite but because it brings collectively two issues I really like very a lot—Parks and Rec and Half-Life 2—into one tightly edited and completely crafted YouTube video that I’ve already watched like six occasions.
I can’t wait to see if Ron Swanson will go to extra of Half-Life 2 and even, maybe, Half-Life: Alyx! I feel Ron would really get together with Russel.
