If you said “A definitely stoned hipster-looking dirtbag dinosaur?“, then you’d be correct! Jimmy Kimmel Live! is in Austin, Texas this week for SXSW, so Jimmy Kimmel released a weed-scented smoke signal into the air or opened an extra-large bag of Cool Ranch Doritos or whatever you do to summon Matthew McConaughey. And once he arrived on his magical flying bongos, they filmed a bunch of fake commercials for a VHS rental place in Austin called Vulcan Video.
It all happens around the 3:17 mark, and watching the Texas T-Rex in his natural habitat (a parking lot) will get you extremely second-hand high, so you might want to crack a window before you press play:
Now, I’m not sure if Jimmy Kimmel asked Matthew McConaughey to really Matthew McConaughey it up, but he’s full awraiight-awraiight-awraiight. Almost too awraiight; there were some moments when I was positive he’d thrown a handful of bath salts into his bong before they started rolling.
I also get the feeling that Jimmy Kimmel didn’t have to call him up and ask if he wanted to shoot some fake commericals; I bet they showed up at Vulcan Video one day and discovered Matthew McConaughey all bearded and scraggly wandering aimlessly through the aisles with a beer in one hand and a half-eaten burrito in the other, and he was all “Oh hey, a camera! Want me to do some of them talking words for you? Just lemme run out to my truck real quick so I can change into my good hat.”
