Where do I even begin with True Detective? It’s pretty much the greatest thing to happen to me since Breaking Bad went off the air. The characters are amazing, the plot line is twisted in the most perfect way, and staring at Matthew McConaughey for an evening is never a bad way to go. Am I right?!
But the show, itself, is not the only amazing aspect of the show. The True Detective community is what really makes it the ultimate experience. Every five minutes, there’s a new True Detective theory to hit the interwebs, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t on the True Detective subreddit every five minutes. But something else has happened as well. With a show like True Detective, it’s no surprise that certain elements lend themselves perfectly to awesome, hilarious parodies. Between Rust Cohle’s obsession with his beer cans, Agent Hart’s ridiculous cheating and this Yellow King, there’s a lot to be explored.
And as if I didn’t already love Joel McHale, the Community star has absolutely made my day with his True Detective parody featured on his show, The Soup. The focus of his parody is exactly on point and that is, “WHAT DID HE JUST SAY?!” And they’re right. Every time McConaughey’s character is telling some story or explaining some clouded part of his past, it’s always a little difficult to understand what exactly he is trying to say. So, with McHale playing Rust Cohle and Jim Rash playing Marty Hart, I present to you the greatest True Detective parody ever.

OH, AND NOTICE THE BEER CANS!
