Oscar award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey has had a secret YouTube account for quite some time, and it has only 59,000 subscribers.

The account came to light when Reddit user S1icedBread posted a link to McConaughey’s verified YouTube channel on Thursday, noting that “nobody watches” the channel. Many of the videos had a lower than expected number of views. The subject was trending on social media this weekend.

That may not be the case any more. The account was up from 45,167 on Thursday to nearly 59,000 subscribers by Saturday, and one video had more than a million hits.

Most of videos are of him talking about his upcoming entertainment gigs. He also discusses charities and organizations he urges his fans to donate too. Two of the charities he works with are the I Am Water Foundation and Just Keep Livin Foundation. The I Am Water Foundation gives want to people living on the streets, and the Just Keep Livin Foundation helps inner-city teens in high school.
