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...
#1 - An Oscar
Or, rather, the Oscar, the one McConaughey earned for his role in "Dallas Buyers Club" in 2013. McConaughey has come a long way from the days of "Maid in Manhattan" and "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days."
#2 - Hemp necklace
A gift from his BFF, co-star of the HBO show "True Detective," and hemp extraordinaire Woody Harrelson.
#3 - VHS Tape of Dazed and Confused
To remind himself of where he came from. "Alright, alright, alright."
#4 - Lip balm
Because even celebrities sometimes get chapped lips.
#5 - Leonard DiCaprio's autograph
