Good news, everyone! Oscar-winning renaissance man Matthew McConaughey is teaming up with one of the most talked about filmmakers of the last few years, “Drive” helmer Nicolas Winding Refn. Oh, but wait, it’s for a series of car commercials.
McConaughey and Refn have joined forces for a new campaign for Lincoln, and it’s sort of in the sweet spot for both of them: Refn gets to shoot a handsome man behind a wheel, and McConaughey gets to spout some cod-philosophy in his Rust Cohle manner. We poke fun, but there’s actually a sly humor to some of these, mainly when McConaughey faces off against a bull.
There’s a total of five clips in the campaign, but only three have made their way online, along with the promotional video where McConaughey talks about them. You can watch the clips below, and we’ll update this post when the rest come in.
