Patrick Swayze has PBR on his mind.

The late, great "Dirty Dancing" star gets his "Saturday Night Fever" groove on (with a woman who might very well be his wife, Lisa Niemi) in this 1979 commercial for Pabst Blue Ribbon.

It's quite amusing to see PBR, that cheapest and most lowest common denominator of beers (and we mean that in the most affectionate way possible), celebrated so extravagantly. Look at how thrilled everyone is to be out at a dance club and drinking big frothing mugs of the stuff!

Despite the bizarre context, it's rather endearing to see a young Patrick Swayze doing his thing with a big smile and without a trace of cynicism. Makes us want to go buy a can of the stuff he's peddlin' at the dive bar around the corner...
