Matthew McConaughey takes out full-page ad for Nick Foles in Texas paper

The Philadelphia Eagles upset the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, and numerous playmakers aren't yet willing to come down from the high that victory has provided.

Sunday, actor Matthew McConaughey took out a full page advertisement in the Austin American-Statesman congratulating the quarterback for engineering the 41-33 upset win against the New England Patriots.

"From one local to another, congratulations Nick Foles", the ad reads before the sign off: "Just keep livin, Matthew McConaughey". If the University of Texas is playing in a football game, it's nearly guaranteed that you'll see McConaughey on the sideline once or twice per season.

He obviously was deeply moved by the Philadelphia Eagles' stunning win against hot favorites the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl last Sunday.

Foles was born in Austin, where he played football at Westlake High School.

Foles might actually be more popular than even McConaughey right now in Austin. On Feb. 9, the mayor of Austin, Steve Adler, proclaimed it to be Nick Foles Day.

Foles was named Super Bowl MVP for his effort, throwing for 373 yards and three touchdowns and catching another touchdown.
