Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln Commercial
You may have seen the star’s new car commercial, but you might not have realized who originally starred in it with him.
Feeling a bit agressive? Need to let your inner Klingon free? Then this is just the scarf for you. It can be used in battle or just worn around your neck to keep you or your favorite Klingon warrior warm. With the silk and merino content and the holes formed by the grips, it flows gently around any Klingon or non-Klingon neck and won‘t get too warm. It also can come in handy in case a Klingon battle ensues. Don‘t be caught empty handed this winter!
