Matthew McConaughey's Lincoln commercials were infused with inscrutable Rust Cohleisms, but thanks to Redditor Gandalfs_stolen_cart, it looks like one of the ads actually had a spoiler-y connection to "Interstellar."
Warning: If you have not seen "Interstellar," stop reading now -- serious spoilers about the ending ahead!
In one of McConaughey's three Lincoln commercials, he rambles on about the past, the future and the ability to rather ambiguously move through both. "Sometimes you've got to go back to actually move forward," McConaughey says in the ad. "I don't mean going back to reminisce or chase ghosts. I mean, going back to see where you came from, where you've been, how you got here, see where you're going."
Could anything better encapsulate the ending of "Interstellar," in which Cooper (McConaughey), whose future presence is sensed in the past and believed to be a "ghost" by his daughter, literally moves through time via wormhole? Let's also not forget that Cooper's daughter, Murph, also literally "goes back" to her childhood home and thus makes the ultimate discovery that saves the people on Earth. But wait, there's more.
"I know there are those who say you can't go back," McConaughey muses in the ad. "Yes, you can. You just have to look in the right place." Hmm, the right place ... why not travel through a wormhole and end up in a five-dimensional bookshelf where you can communicate with your past self and your daughter in order to save the fate of humanity? Yeah, it sounds like he was looking in the right place. Besides wondering if McConaughey was messing with us all along with these ads, we're also curious if Lincoln is going to come out with a TARS model. If so, it better feature talking GPS in Bill Irwin's voice.
Watch the ad for Lincoln, then proceed to realize that time is indeed a flat circle, guys.
