Matthew McConaughey and his family helped a Texas senior living facility play some bingo through the video conferencing app Zoom.

The 50-year-old actor, along with his wife Camila Alves, two of their children and his mother Joy, hosted a round of bingo with the residents of The Enclave at Round Rock Senior Living in Round  Rock, Texas on Sunday.

The facility shared a video of the ‘virtual bingo’ event on their Facebook page Sunday, showing the Dazed and Confused star calling out two winners.

‘We got I-24,’ McConaughey says in the brief video, before the family starts cheering as two winners are revealed.

‘Richard is waving a hammer up high, we got Charles with the iPad up high. We got two winners!’ the actor adds, as his wife takes photos of all of the bingo participants who are playing through Zoom.

The video already has over 40,000 views since it was posted to the facility’s Facebook page.

‘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!’ the video’s caption began.

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,’ the caption concluded.

They also shared a second video, seemingly at the end of the virtual bingo session, where one of the facility’s employees thanked McConaughey for joining them.

‘I wanted to say, from all of us, we want to continue to turn a red light into a green light,’ she said, as all of the residents held up green signs.

The signs featured some of the actor’s most memorable quotes, such as ‘Just keep livin’ from Dazed and Confused, ‘I checked the list of people I trust and your name ain’t on it’ from The Lincoln Lawyer and ‘If I didn’t catch a fish all day I’d find a way to kill you,’ from Serenity.

The beloved actor smiled and laughed while reading all of the messages, as they all thanked each other for being there.

The actor also announced a new video series on Instagram he’s calling ‘McConaugheyTakes,’ revealing he’s going to do something ‘different’ with his Instagram, where he reflects on his old movies.

‘Seeing that these times with the coronavirus we’re all sort of quarantining ourselves at home more, meaning we have more screen time, more things to watch,’ he said.

‘So I’m going to be going over a lot of my movies, giving you some fun tidbits that maybe you hadn’t heard before. Maybe you’ll find them funny, maybe you’ll want to rent the movie because they’re all out there streaming anyway.
