“True Detective” is what’s hot in the streets right now, and based on the mystical way the world works that also means “True Detective” parodies now make up 40 percent of the videos uploaded to the Internet.

Despite being a casual fan of the HBO drama (or perhaps because of it), I’m not going to be amused by your run-of-the-mill parody. This purported “Yellow King” theory made me laugh because it perfectly captured the absurd sense of conspiracies and deep readings surrounding the show. I like this one with Joel McHale because it has Joel McHale.

What sets this video apart from Jon Rudnitsky’s is what might be my favorite Rust Cohle impression yet. Sure, the accent isn’t perfect and he might not look exactly like McConaughey, but he captures the character better than anyone else that I’ve seen and the end result is fantastic.

Everything I’ve Wanted To Say To My Cousin Since She Overdosed 8 Years Ago

Dear Jess, It’s been eight years since you succumbed to your demons. I remember that day so vividly. “Jess is gone,” my dad told me. “Gone? She ran away?” “No. She’s GONE,” he confirmed. I’ve written about you twice — twice in eight years. They were short pieces, never offering much detail.  Most people I […]
