Matthew McConaughey Skits Saturday Night Live
Matthew McConaughey headed a strong episode of Saturday Night Live, made even better by a musical appearance by the sublime Adele (Click to watch).
Speaking of Adele–the digital short of the warring family overcome by peace love and understanding every time an Adele song was played was a smart take on the singers ubiquity and universal appeal. WHO DOES NOT LOVE ADELE!?! Should you Chime in on This is something I ask myself every single damn day as I scroll through my twitter mentions. Game shows parodies that feature Kenan Thompson as the host always win.
McConaughey’s got a screw loose, and I mean that as a compliment. It makes him a perfect SNL host. He’s game for anything. The only thing missing were the Lincoln car commercials.
Watch all the skits below.
