Long before Matthew McConaughey was a 45-year-old human bong, he was just a 23-year-old human boing. The Criterion Collection has put out a special edition reissue of Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused from 1993 and on that shit is the Texas T-Rex’s audition tape for the role of everyone’s favorite burnout David Wooderson. While working that gorgeous feathered helmet haircut that every skater dude in the 90s worked, the Texas T-Rex fists the air and shares lines with the kid who got cast as Mitch Kramer. The Texas T-Rex can act (although, he’s pretty much playing himself in this clip), but he sucks at invisible driving. Where were the invisible cops when we needed them, because I’m pretty sure he sideswiped at least two invisible cars.
And it goes without saying, but as long as he kept on that Headbanger’s Ball t-shirt, I’d hit it all night, all night, all night.
