Who’s the Manliest Actor You Can Think Of?

The concept of masculinity, whether or not you choose to believe in it, exists in different forms throughout the world. While each culture or society might have their idea of what constitutes a “real man,” are there really any defining traits?

Apparently, a mustache might be one.

While traveling through India, American Michelle Johnson Blimes came across this public bathroom, which used an image of burly, mustachioed actor Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec, Fargo) as the symbol for the men’s bathroom. She posted the image to social media, and it immediately went viral.

Here’s what Nick Offerman had to say…

As the photo began trending on social media, Parks and Rec co-creator Michael Schur tweeted it out saying “This is amazing. A bathroom in Maduri, India, uses @Nick_Offerman as the visual representation of ‘man.'”

When news of unlikely bathroom sign reached Offerman, he humorously tweeted out a simple “namaste” in recognition.

Luckily, the actor didn’t seem to mind that the bathroom was using his likeness.
