Matthew McConaughey showing up on your doorstep with a frozen turkey is something that doesn't happen every day.  Texas loves Matthew McConaughey, and we might have a lil competition now from Kentucky over who loves him more after this gem.

Why in the world did Matthew McConaughey pick Lawrenceburg, KY to pass out 4500 frozen turkeys?  Booze!  Sort of.  The turkey adventure might have a little something to do with his beloved Wild Turkey Bourbon, which is headquartered in Lawrenceburg.

Butterball donated the turkeys as part of the Wild Turkey Gives Back initiative and Matthew went door-to-door with the frozen birds and surprised folks.  About 250 other people also chipped in to help out.

Matthew offered a thought for all of us, heading into the holiday season.  He said, "Thanksgiving, gratitude -- we believe in our family that the more you're thankful for, the more that you show gratification, the more that you’re gonna create in your life to be thankful for."  Like family and friends and turkey, and maybe a little of that bourbon.  Have a happy Thanksgiving!
