— -- Ads for Lincoln Motors featuring Oscar-winner Matthew McConaughey got the "Saturday Night Live" spoof treatment, and the skits -- featuring Jim Carrey -- have got people laughing all over the Internet.

In the first video, Carrey as McConaughey can be seen driving in a Lincoln MKC. He parodies McConaughey's pronounced drawl and much of his dialogue, but he makes a few modifications.

"Sometimes you've got to go back to actually move forward, and I don't mean go back and reminisce or chase ghosts, I mean take a big step back like go from winning an Oscar to doing a car commercial," Carrey says. "My agent was like, 'I could understand if you did this right after 'The Lincoln Lawyer.' That would have made sense. But you don't buy a Lincoln 'cause it makes sense. You do it 'cause you love it -- or 'cause you're an Uber driver."

In the original, McConaughey says: "Sometimes you've got to go back to actually move forward, and I don't mean going back and reminisce or chase ghosts, I mean going back to see where you came from, where you've been, how you got here, see where you're going."

Carrey also rubs his fingers together -- much like McConaughey does in the actual commercials -- but then remarks: "When I'm done rolling up this booger should I eat it or throw it out the window?"

In another faux commercial, Carrey is also seen driving silently while, in a voiceover, he can be heard pondering the meaning of life, nature's mistakes and whether mankind should be extinguished "like the pathetic match that it is."

At that point, a small boy speaks up from the back seat.

"Dad, are you OK?" he asks.

Next to him, a little girl addresses Carrey: "You're going five miles an hour."

Carrey replies: "Not bad for a Lincoln," but in voiceover he can be heard saying: "Whose kids are these? And how did they get in my Lincoln?"

The commercials are catching on.

They were posted to YouTube on Sunday and, as of Sunday night, had been viewed more than 466,000 times.

Carrey isn't the first to have parodied the Lincoln commercials. "South Park" has had its fun with the McConaughey commercial, and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has, too.

DeGeneres digitally included herself in a commercial that had McConaughey facing down a bull inside the Lincoln MKC he's driving. She provides commentary from the back seat of the MKC, eats brownies, asks McConaughey what he's doing with his fingers and leans over next to McConaughey to change the elevator-style music in the vehicle to a station playing "Turn Down for What" by DJ Snake and Lil' Jon.

As of Sunday night, her version -- posted Sept. 22 -- had been seen more than 4.3 million times on YouTube.
