What's in Matthew McConaughey's Fanny Pack?

View Comments(0)

Matthew McConaughey is single-handedly trying to bring back the fanny pack. And, I guess, if ever there were a person to try, Matthew McConaughey is the man for the job.

It started when he was spotted at Fenway Park wearing a fanny pack. Was this fashion choice ironic? Was it legit? The only way to find out was to ask. McConaughey revealed that he's totally serious about his fanny packs, guys.

In the interview, he said: "I'm not afraid of the fanny pack. Instead of stuffing your pockets... you kind of got to put it on the side to make it look a little not-as-nerdy, but still, practicality wins out. I've got so much gear in here that I don't want in my pockets, I'm not afraid of the fanny pack."

TicketNetwork.com has definitely been a proponent of fanny packs (we even hosted a "Bring Back the Pack" contest back in the day). Thankfully, McConaughey is doing the legwork for us.

But what's inside of that fanny pack? Here are some of my theories...

ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

If you've been on Facebook recently, there's no doubt in my mind that you've seen at least one video of a friend, acquaintance, or otherwise, dousing his or herself with a bucket of ice water, before promptly calling out some of their friends to do the same. It's all in an attempt to raise awareness and donations for ALS, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gerig's Disease. The premise: those are tagged are asked to donate a sum of money (typically, $100) to ALS or film themselves pouring a bucket of ice-cold water on themselves. In most cases, people have opted to do both. Even celebrities and public figures have gotten in the challenge, including Justin Timberlake (video above), Mark Zuckerberg, the cast of "Grey's Anatomy," and Conan O'Brien. According to the ALS website, these donations have helped raise more than $3 million in additional donations for this time period, which is pretty awesome.

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift made headlines for two reasons this week: first, because she stopped by Boston Children's Hospital to make a special visit to an adorable 5-year-old named Jordan. Together, they sang along to "We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together" for a very sweet moment. If that wasn't enough, Swift started dropping clues about her new music. It started on Monday with a cryptic Instagram video of her hitting the number '18' six times while in an elevator. Then she released two more hints: a screenshot of a phone (a picture that includes her cat, Olivia, a camera, and some artwork), as well as this image referencing Yahoo.com. So what is it, exactly? No one knows. But hopefully something will be revealed soon!
