Most people familiar with Richard Linklater's "Dazed and Confused" know that Matthew McConaughey's character in the film, David Wooderson, says the now famous McConaughey-ism "all right, all right, all right" (which became the actor's mantra throughout this past awards season, right up to the Oscar podium). But how did McConaughey come up with the idea to incorporate that into his first big-screen role? Watch below.

Complex has dug up a 2011 interview between George Stroumboulopoulos and McConaughey, wherein the actor explains he'd been listening to a live recording by the Doors as prep before shooting his scenes in "Dazed and Confused." Jim Morrison yells "all right" four times at the start of a song. And so the catch phrase was born.
