AUSTIN, Texas — “All right, all right, all right”: Matthew McConaughey was in the house Saturday in Austin.

Sort of.

The actor, a University of Texas alumnus and a diehard Longhorns football fan, was “seated” at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in several places.

That’s because there were cutouts of McConaughey in character from a sampling of his films, including “Dazed and Confused,” “Dallas Buyers Club,” “Interstellar,” “Angels in the Outfield,” “The Wedding Planner,” “Magic Mike” and “The Lincoln Lawyer.”

The “Minister of Culture" or MoC, for the athletics department, was all over the place as the Longhorns prepared to face Texas Christian University.

The idea was the brainchild of the university’s marketing team, For The Win reported. Texas announced before the season that for $50, fans could buy cardboard cutouts to be placed in the stadium.

The marketing department even produced a video clip showing off the movie cutouts, KVUE reported.

In the voice-over, McConaughey says, “Well, I don’t have many affiliations. I’ve got God, I’ve got my family, I got America, and I got Texas. This is one of those things that’s nonnegotiable for me wherever I go.”

It was a great idea. Unfortunately for the Longhorns, it didn’t help. No. 9 Texas lost 33-31 loss to the unranked Horned Frogs.

And that was not all right.
