No need to worry about spoilers in this ‘True Detective’ spoof! Joel McHale and Jim Rash poke fun at Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s slurs and mumbles on the popular HBO series — and we can’t understand a word they’re saying! Check out the hilarious catchy catchy catchy bing bong video right here! What?

Matthew McConaughey‘s gritty HBO crime noir True Detective had us hooked from day one, but we have to admit that we’ve been tempted to turn on the closed captioning more than a few times! It turns out we’re not the only ones — Joel McHale and Jim Rash have also had trouble keeping up!

‘True Detective’ Parody: Joel McHale Mocks HBO Show With ‘Soup’ Spoof

In a new video titled “Can Anyone Understand ‘True Detective?’” that aired during the March 5 episode of Joel’s show The Soup, he and his “Community” co-star Jim Rash do tongue-tied impressions of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson‘s hardened cop characters — and the results are hysterical!

We’d like to raise our Big Hug Mugs to these true comedians!

Matthew McConaughey’s ‘True Detective’ Long-Take Heist Scene

We’re not surprised Joel and Jim decided to spoof True Detective – the show is chock-full of buzzworthy scenes!

One of our favorites of the season features Detective Rust Cohle (McConaughey) bursting into a housing project, surviving multiple shootouts, running outside to escape from a crowd of police, running through yet another house, hopping over a fence, and then — finally — making his way into his partner Detective Hart’s (Woody Harrelson) car.

Did you get all that? Just be thankful there wasn’t much dialogue to trip you up!

So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Joel’s True Detective parody is funny? Let us know!
