"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


austin celebrity news

We here at Texas in Africa are not in the habit of tracking the movements of celebrities...ever (except their poor fashion choices), but what happened at today's Texas-Nebraska game is too funny not to share.

So, a couple of times a year, we look up from our primo seats in the student section to see none other than actor/high priest of the naked bongo Matthew McConaughey in his box. Our seats are usually right below his box, and sometimes he brings Owen Wilson with him, so watching them is an amusing way to pass the time during the ridiculously long T.V. timeouts.

About halfway through the fourth quarter, as the Horns were surging, I looked up just in time to see something fall from their box. No one seemed to notice anything, so we went back to watching the game. But then it was quiet in our area and we can hear the woman in white (above) yelling to the people below, "But it's mine." And then McConaughey hollered, "There are naked pictures on there!" Such that the whole section could hear.

Lesson to be learned: if you're hanging out with a celebrity at a football game, don't set your camera on a ledge where it can fall. 'Cause you're never getting it back.
