Matthew McConaughey Reaction Videos refers to a series of parody videos based on a scene from the 2014 science fiction film Interstellar wherein the main protagonist Cooper (played by Matthew McConaughey) reacts emotionally while watching a backlog of video messages sent from his family over the course of decades.


In the film, after a reconnaissance mission on the planet Miller goes horribly wrong, Cooper and the rest of the group return to their spaceship only to discover that 23 years had passed during their hours-long operation on the planet due to the heavy time dilation caused by its proximity to a blackhole. What follows afterwards is a highly emotional scene, wherein Cooper begins watching all of the video recordings that were transmitted to the spaceship from his children on Earth over the course of the last two decades.

. . . Yeah, this one just doesn't do it for me. I mean, yeah, they're kind of funny, but the emotional ravaging that the original scene always does to me sort of sours it. : \ Still, it's nice to see Interstellar getting more attention (I'm still salty about it's mere 71% rating on Rotten Tomatoes)
