To the freepers who jumped me about matthew m. and told me he is a Texan...conservative.....blah blah...when I said he was part of the hollywood scene.....yeah....look at this video
I'm curious to know, but don't want to click on the video and help to bump up their numbers!
I got a very different take on that video. I thought it was hilarious.
Seemed to me the celebs were TROLLING their fellow celebs with this droll, deadpan, and very satirical recitation.
This video could easily have been directed at Meryl Streep. They just left off the sarc tag.
Seemed to me it was the “journalists” reporting this vid who either didn’t get it, or rushed to put the PC spin on it.
McConaughey’s (sp?) part is precisely, for me, what cancelled all doubt.
His part was “hey, hey.” Totally deadpan. That’s all, nothing more.
Then he comments, off script, “hey, I like that part.”
He does not deserve fury for that. It was FUNNY.
So why we are getting our knickers a-twist? Tempest in a teapot.
WE will definitely survive, whether a bunch of movie stars agree with us or not.
Obviously, Matthew McConaughey is Hollywood and not a conservative.
But it looks and sounds like he's doing it as a gag.
You could say that for some of the other celebs in it as well.
It doesn't have much in common with the anti-Trump celebrity videos that came out a few weeks back.
Maybe the Beef Council should get an earful from conservatives.
Something like, "Gee, I used to love the sizzling mouthwatering sounds of your radio ads on my way to the store to figure out what to buy for dinner. Too bad I don't hear them anymore, because I change stations immediately"
Or, "I have vowed that every time I hear your ad with MM's voice, my next meat purchase in a grocery or restaurant will be something other than beef. Hey, I've always heard it's less healthy than other meats anyway, and maybe this will help me broaden my tastes."
Or, "I will never stop eating beef, but OTOH I've decided to answer your Hollyweird spokesman's recent 'making a statement' with one of my own: I've put on my speed dial the PETA donation text code, and by saying just 6 words to google voice, I can donate $5 to PETA's Make America Meatless campaign every time I hear him on your ads as I drive."
