What’s the one piece of television memorabilia you would most love to own? If you said Ron Swanson’s mustache, you’re in luck. The well known bit of upper lip hair has been turned into one heck of a conversation piece for the collector, and it’s being auctioned off this coming week.
Nick Offerman, who plays Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation donated his mustache to be auctioned off at an event in Los Angeles benefitting the pediatric cancer charity Because of Ezra. The mustache, which appeared on Offerman during the most recent season of the comedy series, was carefully shaved by a professional from his very face. It was then reconstructed and placed in a mold made of Offerman’s face from the nose down, creating an image of just how the mustache appeared on your television screen. It’s been encased in museum-quality glass to preserve it for the ages.
On Thursday, August 23rd, the mustache will go down in celebrity auction history when it is put on the block to raise money for the charity, which helps children who have been diagnosed with solid-mass pediatric cancers. According to Vulture, tickets are still available for the event here. If you aren’t in the LA area but want your chance to own this fantastic bit of lip décor, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to make that mustache your own.
Imagine the looks on your friend’s faces when they enter your home and behold the glory that is Ron Swanson’s mustache proudly displayed? Even if it wasn’t for charity, it would be worth it just for the reaction.
