Jamey Johnson's Music Video: Matthew McConaughey Dressed in Monkey Suit


Jamey Johnson's Music Video: Matthew McConaughey Dressed in Monkey Suit
Despite losing his job, Matthew McConaughey has good time with his pal Jamey Johnson in this 'Playing the Part' music video which clocks in more than 7 minutes.


A music video for Jamey Johnson's "Playing the Part" has made its way out. Directed by Matthew McConaughey, it follows a man dressed in a gorilla suit walking around the streets of Los Angeles after he gets fired from his job as a sign holder. He finally ends up in a bar where Johnson plays with his band.

"Jamey and this song both have a great sense of humor, so I wanted the video to have a 'wink' to it," McConaughey told Entertainment Tonight. "For any video, if you like the song, you should like it even more after you see the video. I wanted this video to support the lyrics, and elevate the song."

He then explained, "I had a few initial ideas, but after Jamey and I talked about why he wrote it and where the song came from, it was clear that I needed a man in a monkey suit." The one who dresses up as the monkey actually is McConaughey himself.
