This Music Video Starring Matthew McConaughey’s ‘Wooderson’ Suggests He Too Might Stay The Same Age

This story doesn’t need any snark, nor any particular insight. It stands on its own merit.

In a new music video, Matthew McConaughey has reprised his legendary Dazed and Confused character Wooderson, the man who keeps getting older even though high school girls stay the same age, and who thinks it would be a lot cooler if you had a joint on ya.

The appearance comes in Butch Walker and the Black Widows’ video for “Synthesizers,” a song that sounds just like “Come On Eileen,” but updated for 2012. The song is so-so, but seeing Wooderson again is a flat-out revelation. He’s rocking the same look, and 18 years later, Matthew McConaughey doesn’t look as though he’s changed a bit.

His advice for looking so young?

Just keep livin’, man. L-I-V-I-N.
