I’m not sure if people outside of Austin, TX and other similar cities are aware of this fact, but even in the age of Netflix and Amazon Prime there still plenty of old-fashioned video stores out there giving their customers the twin gifts of cinema and friendship. In Austin specifically, there are actually not one but two thriving video stores, each with multiple locations, and one of them, Vulcan Video, got some cool and funny commercials produced with the participation of Matthew McConaughey and Jimmy Kimmel.
The Vulcan Video commercials are part of a whole week of shows Kimmel is shooting in Austin for the ongoing South by Southwest media festival, but they’re worth watching even if you have no interest in visiting an Austin, TX video store. That’s thanks in large part to Austin’s favorite son Matthew McConaughey who is the definition of game, cutting up with Kimmel as only he can.
You can watch the Vulcan Video commercials from Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s first Austin South by Southwest show of the week below. And if you’re intrigued by the wondrous VHS tapes and posters they have to offer, check out the official Vulcan Video site here (they have DVD and Blu-ray too).
