Everybody seems to love Nick Offerman, but nobody loves Nick Offerman like the stringy-haired man in a Nick Offerman shrine from this video for They Might Be Giants’ “The Greatest” loves Nick Offerman. Or maybe “love” isn’t the right word for this terrifying Buffalo Bill nightmare, in which a man sews together a Nick Offerman suit and stabs needles into a Nick Offerman doll. Thankfully, it all wraps up with a happy ending. (Not really, but we’ve got tour dates to get to and we don’t want everyone to be bummed out.)

If that video didn’t scare you off, They Might Be Giants have also shared a batch of North American tour dates for the spring in support of their recently released album I Like Fun. 2018 will also see the return of TMBG’s Dial-A-Song service, which the video above is specifically promoting, so there’ll be a whole bunch of solid TMBG content coming over the next few months.
