Video: Jim Carrey Perfectly Trolls Matthew McConaughey Ads for the 2015 Lincoln MKC

If you’ve watched TV in the last month, then you’ve probably seen those commercials with Matthew McConaughey riding around in a 2015 Lincoln MKC, contemplating the deeper truths of life. Well, Jim Carrey saw them too, and he teamed up with the comedic masterminds at Saturday Night Live to make some perfectly executed parodies. Prepare to laugh...

Matthew McConaughey is one of the most popular actors on the planet. Lincoln is one of the least popular car companies on the planet. So hiring the Academy Award-winning actor to hawk Lincoln’s compact luxury crossover to newly monied young professionals was a pretty smart move. The resulting TV ads show McConaughey riding around in a 2015 Lincoln MKC, babbling on about... crap you think about only when you’re stoned. It’s a very, intellectual approach. And it’s perfectly suited to the MKC’s demographic.

The rest of us, however, find McConaughey’s whispering and hand gestures... a little odd. And what’s with the PBS documentary music? Anyway, Jim Carrey decided to entertain the rest of us... non-compact luxury crossover buyers, with a series of hilarious remakes. If you’ve seen the commercials, you’re about to laugh your butt off. If you haven't, you should probably hold on to your butt too.

We’ve also included the Ellen DeGeneres parody, because it’s pretty funny too.

On a side note, those 2015 Lincoln MKC ads have managed to put the beleaguered Ford division back on the map. Not only do they grab people’s attention on TV, these parodies reach even more people, causing them to think and talk about the 2015 Lincoln MKC. Let’s hope they can keep this momentum going.
