Sure, neighbors have tossed a beer back together from time to time, but probably not like this.

Matthew McConaughey was in the middle of shooting a segment for The Amazing Race in New Orleans with Saints quarterback Drew Brees, and his apartment just happened to be across the street from Brad Pitt’s apartment. Naturally, Pitt came out to say hi.

After getting his attention, Pitt went back into his apartment and tossed McConaughey a beer—literally. There’s some excellent hand-eye coordination involved.


Was it some sort of secretive nod to True Detective, where Pitt is reportedly close to signing a deal to join the second season? Just a friendly nod? Well, it just might spark a series of (probably failed) beer tosses with less famous neighbors.
