Matthew McConaughey is back and he is still Dazed and Confused. Matthew’s character, David Wooderson, helped launch his career in Hollywood nearly 20 years ago. Matthew, as David, appears in a new music video by Butch Walker and it may, or may not, spark some memories.
Do not be embarrassed if it takes a little memory jogging to remember who David Wooderson is. The film did not exactly target an audience of advanced thinkers. David is the ultimate stoner who really digs rock music. Matthew McConaughey’s reprisal of the iconic stoner will no doubt stir up some memories of days gone by.
The video for “Synthesizers” opens with David strolling into a bar with a couple of gorgeous ladies. Matthew is almost unrecognizable with a head full of shaggy hair and a blonde mustache. He even sports a bit of a paunch. It could just be the unflattering wardrobe, but he does not look like the hunk that is so popular today. You can check out the video for yourself, here.
Matthew tells Entertainment Weekly, “If you love Dazed and you loved Wooderson, you’ll see this and you’ll probably get the tickle box pretty quick.” Butch and Matthew both came up with the idea and thought it would be a great way to reminisce. Butch says, “To commemorate the 20 year anniversary of the filming and inception of this amazing movie, we brought a little someone from the film back to be the life of the party for our new video.”
