HBO’s True Detective ended its first season last month and when the credits rolled, it was clear that we had all just watched something singular–an experience that was going to have a profound effect on not only the future of scripted television, but pop culture.
I mean, television just hasn’t ever had a character quite like Rust Cohle.
If you watched the series (and even if you didn’t), you’re probably well-aware of Cohle’s philosophical musings. You’ve probably seen a grizzled Matthew McConaughey, sitting behind a table, drinking Lone Star beer and talking about how time is a flat circle.
Ok, now imagine that table was tiny and Cohle was talking to kids instead of detectives.
Comedian Ross Marquand makes this a reality in a spoof of those AT&T commercials–you know the ones. Watch out for a truly spectacular McConaughey impression.
