Matthew McConaughey is poking fun at himself all in good spirit. The actor, now author, is asking fans to impersonate him by reading from his new book Greenlights.
“send ‘em on in… I can handle it #greenlightsbook” the caption reads.
In the video McConaughey says that he saw somebody reading an excerpt from his book and was thoroughly impressed by this person’s impersonation of the actor.
“You know what? I loved it,” he claims. “It was funny. You made me laugh, pretty damn hard. I think sense of humor should be our default emotion so I’m inviting more sense of humor into mine and your life by calling any of you ‘Greenlighters’ out there, I dare you, do your best impersonation, impression of me reading an excerpt from Greenlights, my book… post it. Send it in.”
McConaughey continues to say that he’s going to look at all of the submissions and repost the best ones on his Instagram story.
