Ron Swanson is probably sweating with jealousy.

Beloved "Parks and Recreation" star Nick Offerman narrates the western comedy short film "The Gunfighter," which won the Audience Award at this year's Los Angeles Film Festival.

As the narrator, Offerman literally gets to play God -- and a nihilist one at that. Ron Swanson is probably sweating with jealousy. The narrator of "The Gunfighter" is written in the same way as a third person narrator of a novel, complete with "he saids" and "she saids." What's more is that the characters in the story can hear every word he says, including each character's interior monologue.Secrets are laid bare and mayhem ensues. 

To find out who manages to survive Offerman's "ballet of death," you can watch the film in its entirety below.
