The yule log is a hardy holiday tradition, dating back as far as the 17th century. This year, it gets quite a refreshing update.

This here is Nick Offerman -- actor, woodworker and lover of good whiskey -- simply sitting by the fire and enjoying a glass of good scotch. The catch is that the video lasts 10 hours. (If you're patient enough, you can see how they pull this off, but we won't give anything away.)

Now, you might think this is all a little ridiculous. And that's a fair concern. However, we urge you to give it a shot. Put the video on, and go about your holiday routine. Leave Nick in the background to do his thing. And every now and again, just come check on him.

Helpful tip: you may want to pour yourself a few fingers of the good stuff and leave it by the monitor. We get the feeling you might get a bit thirsty.

Merry Christmas!
