We've always loved Matthew McConaughey. Quarantine has given us about a million and one new reasons to adore the Uvalde, Texas, native. In recent months, the actor hosted virtual bingo for seniors at a retirement home in Round Rock, Texas, surprised teachers in La Porte by crashing their video conference, and cheered us up with trivia videos on some of his most-loved films. During these tough times, he's been a source of lightness and laughter, and endless entertainment as we watch How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days for, oh, the 10th time.

Now, we can hardly contain the chuckles as we watch McConaughey's recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. In his virtual visit with Fallon, McConaughey and the late-night host played a silly game dubbed, "Off Songs, Song Off" where contestants have to guess the name of a popular song the show's house band, The Roots, perform in a tweaked tempo, in a different key, or in a different style of music than the original recording.

In the hilarious game, McConaughey, sporting long locks and a light yellow caftan, shows off some dorky dance moves, and we can't stop smiling. He also tells quite the tale of a Joan Jett concert in a Louisiana monsoon in 1984 that you won't want to miss out on. Watch below.

McConaughey appeared on The Tonight Show to promote his new memoir, Greenlights, out October 20, and available for pre-order on Amazon here.

Have you been tuning in to late night or morning talk shows more than usual as of late to provide you with a spirits boost and some laughs during the coronavirus pandemic? We know we've been leaning on a whole lot of Dolly and McConaughey to get us through.
