If you’re an avowed Shia LaBeouf hater, you better not watch this video. Because, after you do, it’s kind of hard not to like the troubled actor.

Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his upcoming movie Fury, LaBeouf gave the blow-by-blow account of his arrest this summer at a New York production of Cabaret. Shia makes no excuses for his behavior, and manages to recount his incredible night in detail shockingly vivid for someone who was so drunk.

Basically, according to LaBeouf, the only reason this all happened is because of Ireland and the fact that Alan Cumming looks really good in leather pants. Totally understandable, right?
