We’re all doing our best to keep a positive outlook while stuck inside because of COVID-19. One thing that would definitely put a smile on our face? Seeing Matthew McConaughey pop up for a virtual game night.

Although that didn’t happen to us, our hearts are still warmed by the actor showing up for a lucky group of seniors in Texas. The Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living, located just outside McConaughey’s home of Austin, shared adorable photos and videos of McConaughey reading out bingo numbers for residents through video chat while under quarantine with his family. 

Take a look at the video below for the exciting moment someone got to yell “bingo!”

Virtual Bingo with Matthew McConaughey!

Ever play virtual bingo with #MatthewMcConaughey? You’d be a whole lot cooler if you did! The residents at The Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living got to play virtual bingo with #MatthewMcConaughey and his family! Thank you to Matthew, his wife Camila, and his mom Kay for hosting our residents for a few rounds of virtual bingo! Our residents had a great time playing, and they loved talking with Matthew about his family heritage and his favorite drink.

As you can see McConaughey was joined by his wife, three kids, and mother. Several residents of the Enclave actually reached out to the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days hunk back in September asking him to pay a visit and mentioned knowing his mom from her teaching days. We love that they were finally able to make it happen despite the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis keeping us all apart. 

The bingo winner got the prize of asking McConaughey a question. They didn’t share his answers on Facebook, but did say, “Our residents had a great time playing, and they loved talking with Matthew about his family heritage and his favorite drink.” Considering his collaboration with Wild Turkey on their Longbranch bourbon, we can take a pretty good guess about his beverage preference.

The residents also had a surprise for McConaughey up their sleeves before he signed off: signs featuring their favorite quotes from his movies. Take a look to see his sweet reaction: 

During a time when we are all working to make lemonade out of lemons, we are so humbled that Matthew took the time to play our favorite game with us. As Matthew would say, let's turn this red light into a green light!

Here’s hoping McConaughey can make an in-person visit to the Enclave when all of this quarantining and social distancing is over with!
