Matthew McConaughey takes out full-page ad for Nick Foles

The Super Bowl MVP is alright, alright, alright by Matthew McConaughey.

The Oscar-winning actor purchased a full page ad in Sunday’s edition of the Austin American-Statesmen to commemorate Nick Foles — a fellow local of the central Texas city — after he led the Philadelphia Eagles to the first Super Bowl title in franchise history.

“From one local to another, Congratulations Nick Foles,” the actor’s message reads.

“Just keep livin, Matthew McConaughey.”

Foles, who was born in Austin and played high school football there, earned Super MVP honors after passing for 373 yards and three scores while also catching a touchdown on a trick play in the Eagles 41-33 upset of the New England Patriots.

Known for their rowdy behavior, Philly fans didn't disappoint, with some climbing on top of a news van to celebrate the win during the Super Bowl parade on Feb. 8, 2018.

The 29-year-old quarterback was thrust into the starting quarterback role for the Eagles late in the regular season after Carson Wentz suffered a torn ACL.

It’s no secret McConaughey is a big football fan, as he frequently attends games at his alma mater, the University of Texas.

The “Dazed and Confused” star’s ad in the local paper isn’t the only way Foles is being celebrated in Austin following his Super Bowl victory. Mayor Steve Adler last week declared that Feb. 9 will now be known as “Nick Foles Day” in the Texas capital.
