You Have To Watch Matthew McConaughey Making Weird Noises

Matthew McConaugheads will recognise that much of the actor’s best work is, um, non-verbal.

There’s his pelvis-first walk throughout Magic Mike. There's his chest-thumping and coke-snorting lunch routine in The Wolf of Wall Street. And then there's pretty much everything he did during True Detective. It’s impressive that an actor who gave us both “All right, all right, all right,” and “I get older, they stay the same age,” could somehow be more iconic for what he doesn't say. But well, that’s what makes McConaughey great.

YouTube wizards Owenergy Studios have created a highlight reel of all of McConaughey’s non-verbal greatest hits. Here, McConaughey, who has won an Oscar, delivers a powerhouse four-minute performance that’s more incomprehensible and sexually powerful than even Benicio del Toro’s best work.

Of course each grunt, whistle, or howl, is accompanied by body language we won’t even begin to describe. Watch below.
