Matthew McConaughey is a well-known Texas football fan and now readers of Austin American-Statesman know too.
The “Dallas Buyers Club” star took out a full-page ad in the newspaper to celebrate the Super Bowl LII success of fellow Austin, Texas, native and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles.
Foles was recognized as this year’s Super Bowl MVP for leading the Eagles to a 41-33 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday, Feb. 4.
“From one local to another, congratulations Nick Foles,” read McConaughey’s newspaper ad. “Just keep livin’, Matthew McConaughey.”
Fortunately, the ad quickly found its way to social media so that everyone outside Austin could enjoy the actor’s handiwork.
