Kimmel & McConaughey Make a Commercial for Austin's Vulcan Video
"We're a video store in 2015…" This is amazing!! One of the best Jimmy Kimmel sketches I've ever seen. With SXSW ongoing down in Austin, even Jimmy Kimmel is down in Texas and they just premiered one of their first shows taped there last night. As part of the promotion, they reached out to local Austin business to find one that they could work with and make a brand new commercial for. Which one did they choose? Vulcan Video, one of the few remaining (kick ass) video rental stores based in Austin, Texas. If you're ever in Austin, you have to check them out. But in the meantime, this segment they made for them is absolutely hilarious. To top it off they brought in Matthew McConaughey (with gnarly beard) and he is just perfect.
Here's the entire segment from last night's Jimmy Kimmel, with an introduction and everything. So good.
Description from YouTube: "Before our trip to Austin, Jimmy posted a tweet asking for any local business that might want him to help them produce a TV commercial. He decided on beloved local video store Vulcan Video and enlisted the help of a certain Texan movie star." Thank you for this, Kimmel. This is honestly one of my favorite Jimmy Kimmel creations, I love everything about it. From the setup to the exploration of the death of VHS, to McConaughey and his crazy beard and how unbelievably goofy he is. I love that part about "Quit scrolling… quit streaming… start dreaming… about V! H! S!" I love his "alright" hat. Man, now I just want to rent some videos from Vulcan for the weekend.
