Jimmy Kimmel and Matthew McConaughey "gave back" to the Austin community during SXSW by creating a series of commercials for small business Vulcan Video. The VHS and DVD rental store, which boasts amenities like a bathroom, free parking, and a solid collection of Canadian television, is hoping to rent more than two to three tapes per day. The hotshots left the store pretty impressed with the vacant shop, McConaughey eventually giving the store a McConaughey Score of two alrights.
