The Wolf Of Wall Street
Chest Thump Mix

March 11, 2014 | Marina Galperina

The latest video from the Eclectic Method samples Matthew McConaughey “inspirational” chest thump routine that weaves itself throughout the most frattiest moments of The Wolf of Wall Street. Warning: “This video contains NSFW drug abuse to a tribal chest thumping capitalist tribal chant.”

And this cultural run-off has the best backstory. It wasn’t even in the script. That’ just Matthew McConaughey being Matthew McConaughey:

That’s something I’ll do before scenes to relax myself, get my voice to drop. I’ve been doing it for a while. But it’s just something I do to relax myself, get out of my head. And I was doing it before the scene and then I’d start the scene. We do five takes. I’m happy; Martin’s happy. We’re about to move on, and before we moved on, Leonardo raised his hand and said, ‘Hang on a second. What’s that thing you were doing before the scene?’ And I told him, and he said, ‘What if you put that in the scene.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, great.’
