Ellen DeGeneres is taking backseat driving to a new level. During her show on Monday, Sept. 22, the comedienne unveiled a spoof of one of Matthew McConaughey‘s new car commercials for Lincoln, in which she sits in the backseat of his new MKC and offers humorous commentary on his epic stare-down with a bull in the middle of the road.
The original ad, directed by Drive filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn, shows the Oscar-winning actor channeling his True Detective character, Rust Cohle, as he has a conversation with himself about the bull, whom he calls Ol’ Cyrus and describes as “1,800 pounds of ‘do whatever the heck I want.'” In the end, he decides to “respect” Ol’ Cyrus’ space and “take the long way.”
DeGeneres aired the clip on her show, telling the audience, “I have so many questions. But my biggest question is, I don’t know why they cut me out of it.” She added, “I think it made more sense when I was in it.”
She then proceeded to play her parody of the commercial, which featured lots of bovine puns (think “moo-ving” and “bull-dozing”), an apparent reference to pot-laced brownies, and some good-natured ribbing about McConaughey’s odd mannerisms in the ad.
