For such an analog guy–Offerman owns and operates a wood shop–the idiosyncratic actor certainly does know his way around the digital world. Or at least, he doesn’t mind appearing there: videos featuring Offerman show up as regularly as the changing of the tides. Perhaps its the fact of his tactile-focused nature that makes Offerman such an internet curio leading to world-colliding videos like this one in which he ostensibly carves his recent book out of wood. while that bit may have been a full-on gag, this week’s Conan appearance involved some objects that really do bridge the Internet and the physical world: wood cut emojis.
