Patton Oswalt's 'True Detective' parody is the best


Just when you thought the "True Detective" parody vein was stripped bare, Patton Oswalt comes along and proves you wrong. Maybe time really is a flat circle.

Oswalt, a professed fan of the HBO show, does a fantastic turn as the 2012 version of Matthew McConaughey's Rust Cohle in this promo for his upcoming Comedy Central special, "Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time." The details are spot-on, down to the Big Hug Mug, and his distillation of typical stand-up fodder -- "the state of Florida, and frozen dinners, and children's TV shows" -- is just about perfect.

"Tragedy Plus Comedy Equals Time" premieres April 6 on Comedy Central.
