It has been almost two decades and even though McConaughey has aged, his classic stoner character stays the same age. This collaboration on Butch Walker’s video from his album ‘The Spade’ came out of a health dose of nostalgia.
“When it comes to classic characters, McConaughey’s ‘Wooderson’ took the cake and the high school girls with him,” Walker told Entertainment Weekly.
McConaughey added, “If you loved Dazed and you loved Wooderson, you’ll see this and you’ll probably get the tickle box pretty quick.”
Wooderson stumbles into a club with a handful of LMFAO and Jersey Shore doppelgangers and sets a stark contrast of how pathetic popular culture has changed. Also – keep your eyes peeled for a classy Ron Jeremy cameo.
Sixteen years after “Dazed and Confused” put Matthew McConaughey on the map as the stoner-sage David Wooderson and became the gold standard of high school nostalgia comedies, writer-director Richard Linklater has written a “spritual sequel,” reports ew.com.
The story follows a group of lost boys and girls during their first weekend of college in 1980. The untitled project isn’t literally spiritual or a sequel, strictly speaking — sadly, none of the characters from the first movie will be featured in this one. But, like “Dazed,” it attempts to capture an iconic and infinitely confusing moment in a person’s life by following an ensemble of different characters through a short period of time. Much of the action takes place among the members of a college baseball team.
