Nick Offerman's Pizza From Trees Farm Promotes Healthy Food in Schools

Nick Offerman promotes pizza from trees while sporting overalls and a farmer’s hat with the label “food expert” in a sarcastic new “Funny or Die” video sponsored by the American Heart Association.

Parodying the sun-drenched food commercials, the former “Parks and Recreation” star walks along the rows of his junk food farm talking about the production of his abnormal produce, according to Mashable.

“Welcome to the Pizza Farm, where we're hard at work growing the ripe, juicy pizzas your kids love,” Offerman says. “What could be healthier than this? Acres of pizza, kissed by the sun, stretching as far as the eye can see.”

It’s not just pizza on this farm, though. Coca Cola waters sloppy joes harvested from the ground, taquito trees, and fried fish fingers bushes.

The scam is up once a production intern is having a difficult time stapling the fried food to the tree branches, though.

“Listen: If it’s on a plant, it’s good for you. Who cares how it got there?” Offerman insists.

The American Heart Association sponsored the spoof to promote healthier school lunches “because our kids' health shouldn’t be a laughing matter,” the promotion reads at the end.

“The government tells us we need to offer healthy choices in school lunches, but what is healthy really?” Offerman, named “Daniel Frances, Food Expert,” asks while holding up an apple in one hand and a corn dog in the other. “The answer may surprise you.”

According to Time magazine
, the ridiculous claims
are aimed at mocking special interests that are pushing for the repeal of first lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch regulations requiring only healthier options be offered as Congress considers whether to reauthorize the restrictions in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 when they expire in September.

Offerman currently has a role in the indie drama “Me and Earl and The Dying Girl.” He released his second book, “Gumption,” in May on some of America’s “troublemakers” who took gutsy risks, according to The Wall Street Journal.
