Jim Rash and Joel McHale Recreate ‘True Detective’

Forget solving the mystery of the Yellow King.

Can anyone watching HBO’s new crime drama “True Detective” figure out what Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s hardened cops are actually saying?

In a spoof video titled “Can Anyone Understand ‘True Detective?’” that aired during Wednesday’s episode of “The Soup,”  Joel McHale and his “Community” costar Jim Rash fill in for for the HBO series’ stars with epic, indecipherable banter.

But comprehension issues haven’t stopped audiences from tuning in. Ratings-wise, the show is the premium cable channel’s most popular current series … of course, the new season of “Game of Thrones” does bow April 6.

“The Soup” airs every Wednesday on E! at 10 p.m.
