Feeling a little uninspired today? Can’t believe it’s still not the weekend? Well on days like this, you just gotta keep livin’, man, L-I-V-I-N, and we’ve got just the video clip to help you do exactly that:

Matthew McConaughey Talks to the Texas Longhorns

Yes, Matthew McConaughey’s visit to a University of Texas at Austin football practice will help you surf the perfect wave of serenity all the way to the Island of Eternal Truth. Or maybe it’s just really funny. You be the judge:

Following what must be the most zen-like pep talk in history (We’ve titled the speech "A Time to Chill."), McConaughey leads the team in a round of Wolf of Wall Sreet-style chest thumping – a practice that we imagine will now become a staple in locker rooms across the country.

Sadly, at no point does he spark a doob and ask, "Did you score a touchdown last week? It’d be a lot cooler if you did?"


This glorious footage might beat out Matthew and Woody Harrelson’s Roxbury attire at the Emmys as the Most McConaughey Moment of 2014.

To recap: McConaughey won his first Oscar, starred in TV’s most acclaimed new series, and dominated a Scorsese-DiCaprio production by appearing in one scene.

It was the Year of McConaughey, alright, and if Interstellar is as amazing as the trailers make it look 2015 might be…the Year of McConaughey again.

Hey, time is a flat circle, chief. Alright, alright, alright…
