Conway Twitty & True Detective


After nearly 36 hours of continuous searching and refreshing, I finally found the video I’ve been looking to share with you all since Sunday night.  On Sunday’s True Detective, we found out that one of the leads who’d appeared to be really dead (like, really, really dead) was actually alive–won’t say who.  That was confirmed only after a super weird, amazing opening sequence that was awash in David Lynch stylings.

Even better, the Twin Peaks-ish opening featured a strange, perfectly-out-of-place cover of “The Rose” by a singer doing his best impersonation of KSR favorite, Conway Twitty!  Words don’t really do the intro justice, so I’ll just leave this here [some spoilers in the video] (The embed for the video is apparently disabled, but clicking on Ray Velcoro’s sweet mustache will get you there):

So by your account Harold Potter was a perfectly ordinary Englishman without any tendency towards being a Scotsman whatsoever?

    Isn’t this pretty spoiler-y? The season is only 2 and a half weeks old at this point and this episode aired just 2 days ago. It would be pretty easy for someone to be behind. I mean, I’ve been keeping up with season 2, but if someone hadn’t, you just ruined a pretty big twist in the second sentence of this post and the linked video.

    The scene was great (probably my favorite of season 2 so far), and I understand wanting to share it, but it might be better if you hid the spoiler so that people had to click on a link to view it, or at least warned them about it beforehand.

    That’s not a cover, that is Conway

      Conway covering Bette Midler to be technically correct about it, I suppose

      Me again. Hadn’t seen the video, I see it now, but the impersonator is just lipsynching to Conway’s version of the song. Please carry on, now.
