In what was easily the most brotastic moment in recent pop culture memory, Brad Pitt tossed a beer to fellow renowned actor Matthew McConaughey from the balcony of his New Orleans home. Oh yeah, and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees was also there.

This too-good-to-conceive incident occurred this past Saturday when the recent Oscar winner, who was in town filming a segment with Brees for “The Amazing Race,” was hanging out on a balcony. Moments later, Brad Pitt, who owns the house across the street, emerged and greeted McConaughey. He then proceeded to toss him a beer. McConaughey, being the good ol’ Texas boy that he is, drank it. No word on whether it was Lone Star.

This seemingly impromptu moment couldn’t have come at a better time given that Brad Pitt is allegedly in negotiations to star in the second season of HBO’s True Detective.
