He might not get all the ladies, but he's certainly got all the moves. Whether he's testing out his latest business idea or spraying himself with his own Tommy fragrance, Parks and Recreation 's Tom Haverford knows how to play it. When he's not pretending to be doing the work of the Parks department along side actual hard-working goverment employee Leslie Knope, Haverford is hitting the streets with his main boy Jean-Ralphio. For the uninitiated, Tommy's got major moves. He dated Ann Perkins for goodness sake.
But we can't all be as fierce on the dance floor or at the club as Tom, and sometimes it's smart to take a few lessons from the master. Haverford, as he constantly reminds us, is eternally dripping with swagger. He owns his own business, Rent-A-Swag, and knows how to appreciate the finer things in life, like the latest technology or a well-placed pocket square. He even invented a brand new, self-appreciating holiday called Treat Yo' Self Day.
So in case you aren't sold on Tommy being the quintessential authority on all things lust and love, here's 13 pick-up lines to try next time your out with your posse.
