Channeling Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty William Seeley showed up to claim his share of the Powerball jackpot Tuesday sporting a T-shirt emblazoned with the popular reality show's name, a straw hat, cargo shorts and an impressively long beard.

Seeley, along with 15 of his co-workers, won one-third of the $448 million prize. The group includes six affected by Superstorm Sandy and one woman whose father is responsible for the law bringing the lottery to New Jersey. But it was Seeley -- kinda channeling The Dude from the Big Lebowski -- who got all the attention. He joked that he'd showed up to the press conference in his best outfit and after appearing to knock over a microphone, noted he could afford to fix it.

As for what he plans to do with his share of the winnings? Retire to a log cabin on "multiple acres of land" and watch NASCAR, he said.

"First party is at my cabin!"

Watch a video of his performance above. We're pretty sure The Dude abides.
