Relationship between Matthew McConaughey and his son Levi Alves

The campaign featured three videos, one of which showed the 'True Detective' actor imparting driving advice to his son.

Matthew claimed, "Now, your mother and I, we hope we've raised you well enough to be responsible for yourself, to take care of yourself, to be aware of your surroundings. Driving yourself for the first time, I'd be lying if I said we weren't both a little bit nervous. But that'd be natural I think,"

Matthew also cautioned Levi about the unpredictability of other drivers on the road, urging him to stay vigilant.

The father-son conversation ended with a sentiment similar to Matthew's wishes to Levi on his 16th birthday: "Enjoy the journey, enjoy the drive. Congratulations," he said, before they decided to skip the highway and opt for the scenic backroads.
