YouTube: It’s not just a platform for radicalizing young men to the alt-right alt-right alt-right anymore. It’s also a place for actor and human Margaritaville souvenir flip-flop Matthew McConaughey to impart his particular brand of T-shirt wisdom.
Last week, McConaughey launched an exciting new career as a YouTuber, explaining in his first video that he’ll be using the channel to share “prescriptions in the art of living that have helped me navigate this rodeo that we all live in, and even a bunch of bumper stickers that I’ve seen, heard, gathered, and stolen along the way over my last 51 years here.
In the video, Matthew McConaughey pretty much promises a number of things to happen on his YouTube account, all of which I am down for. According to McConaughey, we can expect quite a lot from the Dallas Buyers Club actor, including updates on what he is working on from time to time, stories and life tips – or, as McConaughey calls them, “prescriptions in the art of living.”
Hopefully it’s going to be all killa no filla, with some raps and rhymes that can help you get back on time, put a little reason to your rhyme. Some food for thought with a sip of wine.
Bring your funny bone.
Don’t be afraid to bend the knee. And join me in the chase to be more me, with your chase to be more you. Because what else are we really here to do?” If reading that made you feel mildly concussed … just imagine how McConaughey must have felt writing it.
McConaughey’s first big YouTube event will be a star-studded fundraiser for victims of the Texas winter storms and outages, featuring everyone from Don Henley to Megan Thee Stallion to Kacey Musgraves to Willie Nelson to Leon Bridges to Post Malone to Kelly Clarkson to Renée Zellweger.
The event streamed on his YouTube channel this pas Sunday, March 21. It’s called “We’re Texas: Giddy Up to Give Back” because of course. And collected the mount of $276.821,00 USD.
While Matthew McConaughey’s film career is still going strong (albeit, slowly), he has opened up his world with a number of new directions. In addition to the wild ride that has been his movie career as both an actor and director, McConaughey is the face of Wild Turkey and also holds the role of creative director for the bourbon company.
He is a businessman, as well as an active philanthropist, and it appears he has now brought the cool air about himself to YouTube’s platform with his own channel.
The Oscar winner just has a way about him; his tone of voice, flow of words and mannerisms come together in a perfect symphony to make you really feel the things he says. I’m not saying that if McConaughey started a cult that I would willingly join up without a question, but….okay, that’s exactly what I’m saying. I’m hooked and hanging on for another video update from the King himself.
