The Internet is treating this like it's some kind of landmark exchange of resources between two superpowers . . . and it's hard to argue that it's NOT.


On Saturday, MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY was hanging out with friends on a balcony in New Orleans, when someone on the balcony noticed that BRAD PITT was on a balcony across the street.

 They acknowledged each other, and it was somehow decided that Matthew needed a cold beer . . . and Brad just happened to have one.  So he tossed it.  And someone just happened to catch the whole thing on video and in a series of photos.


Yep, That's Saints QB Drew Brees!
