UT’s student government posted a photo of McConaughey giving the students a lift on their Facebook page writing “Longhorns take care of each other, and it's 'safe' to say Matthew McConaughey agrees.”
McConaughey was giving the ride as a part of the university’s SURE Walk program created to help students get home safely when walking from campus from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Comments on the The University of Texas Student Government’s post included the question on everyone’s mind: “Can visiting moms use this service lol just to run into him again?:)” It also included “All-ride, All-ride, All-ride!” a play on McConaughey’s constantly quoted Dazed and Confused line “Alright, alright, alright.” In a comment on the post one of the student’s pictured in the photo posted a photo with McConaughey.
It’s not the first time McConaughey’s made news at his alma mater. (McConaughey graduated in 1993.) In September he gave UT’s Texas Longhorns a pep talk when the team played Notre Damem, and he is currently teaching a film class at UT’s Moody College of Communication.
Audiences will see McConaughey this year in
