About 15 years ago, a man named Adam DeCoster — who is a foley artist on shows like Netflix’s Arrested Development and New Girl — wrote a film called Tuna. It was extremely low budget. In fact, the movie didn’t even warrant a listing on IMDB. However, De Costa recently released Tuna to YouTube, which gives us another strange, awkward glimpse into the pre-Ron Swanson Nick Offerman.
The movie also stars Kevin Corrigan, David Krumholtz, 4-year-old Angus T. Jones, and a Louis C.K., before he was “Louis C.K.” It’s apparently about a bunch of guys having conversations while driving around Los Angeles, or Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee without the coffee. You can watch the entire video (it’s 60 minutes long) below, but it’s not very good. I’ll also include screenshots so you can see what you came here to see: Young, goofy-looking versions of people you recognize, plus two guys who are incredibly familiar but whose names I cannot place. I get the feeling that Ron Swanson would also probably kick this Nick Offerman’s ass.
