True Detective fans have twisted themselves into knots trying to solve the show's many mysteries, but a new parody of the show featuring Community stars Joel McHale and Jim Rash asks a simpler question: What on earth are these characters saying, anyway?
In a clip that originally aired on The Soup, McHale and Rash offer hilarious riffs on the mumbly, dialogue-heavy performances by Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in the popular HBO drama. "Coal-farger makes moles into Marys and Marys into moles. My momma said, 'Dog-face to the banana patch,'" says a laconic, mustachioed McHale as he crushes a beer can.
It doesn't exactly get clearer from there — but given the granular nature of True Detective, maybe you'll manage to pull a clue out anyway. --Scott Meslow
