Jimmy Fallon took Matthew McConaughey’s film class at the University of Texas at Austin and pretty much failed right off the bat. “The Tonight Show” host wore a Yankees hat and lunged at gummy worms as if he were a fish in Thursday’s bit.
But the Oscar-winning actor passed Fallon anyway ― perhaps because of McConaughey’s big ol’ Texas heart. Or maybe because it made for a nice segue into Fallon leading the campus audience in the alma mater song “The Eyes of Texas.”
McConaughey, a proud UT alum, really is a teacher at the school. He was appointed as a professor of practice by the university in August after years of serving as a visiting instructor.
Hopefully he’ll never have another pupil like Fallon.
Watch the fun above.
