Forget Mardi Gras, Brad Pitt and Matthew McConaughey’s balcony beer toss is our new favourite thing about New Orleans.

Matthew McConaughey was in the Southern city to film a segment of the popular TV game show The Amazing Race.

Standing on an apartment balcony with his family, Matthew was alerted to a friendly face across the street when Brad came out on his own balcony to give a neighbourly welcome.

Brad, Angelina and their family reside in an apartment in the French Quarter, the oldest neighbourhood in New Orleans.

Southerners are known for their hospitality and ensuring he did not let their reputation down, Brad grabbed a beer from inside and tossed it across the street to Matthew.

Luckily for us mere mortals, this celebrity bromance was captured on video from multiple angles.

Akin to seeing a dog walk on its hind legs, seeing celebrities interact in their normal day to day lives is always a treat.
