| Last updated
Matthew McConaughey has celebrated turning 50 by joining Instagram - and not a moment too soon, judging by his output so far.
The actor announced his arrival on the platform in the most Matthew McConaughey way possible - with an incredibly bizarre Insta story.
It begins with an extremely enjoyable 'badumbadumbbadumbbada' musical intro from McConaughey as the camera pans across to him in a chair.
He then sings: "I may not be willing but I'm... capably able.
"Do I have an Instagram? Well it would be a lot cooler if I did, and guess what? It is now a lot cooler 'cause, I do.
"Alright Instagram let's do this. Let's get some howdies going - howdy."
He wasn't done yet though. He also shared a video in his first post, which has now been viewed almost a million times.
In the video, he said: "When people come to my page, I want them to see me.
"Look, this is my first venture into sharing myself and my views with the world and I'm a little bit nervous about it because quite frankly; I know I want to have a monologue. I'm not quite sure I want to have the dialogue.
"But I know I have to have the dialogue, to have the monologue, just as you have to have a monologue to have the dialogue.
"So I'm looking forward to it, I'm looking forward to it. I'm looking forward to sharing who I am with you, to seeing if who I am translates, if what I want to share translates...
"If it tickles your funny bone, if it makes you think a second, if it makes your heart swell up a little bit, if it makes you take a quiet moment for a walk and go 'I gotta check in with the m and the e... Hopefully all those things.
"Let's have some fun with it though, and let's keep the high eye, not the low eye, high eye."
Unsurprisingly, McConaughey's arrival on the platform has been warmly received, and he has already amassed more than 617,000 followers.
One of his new followers said: "This is going to be classic."
Another said: "Finallyyyyyy! Making sure to turn post notifications all the way ON!"
A third added: "It's like God sent me this today."
