Mac Miller's got acting chops.

Pittsburgh's favorite son popped up today in a heavily-hyped teaser for skate crew/brand Illegal Civilization's new short film. The lightning-fast glimpses we get of the short make it appear to be some sort of Western theme.

Mac is seen in a room with numerous cowboy and rodeo iconography, intercut with shots of a horse and quite the unique green tracksuit. The gold chain and traditional '80s b-boy pose we get from Mac at the end of it is a pretty stark contrast to the preceding imagery, so how they'll cram that connection into an admitted "short" film is anyone's guess.

While we don't have much info on the short, including its name, we do know it will be making its premiere next week in New York City on March 23 at the brand's Illegal Civ event.
