Kevin Bacon Shares Painful #TBT Photo on ‘Conan': ‘Hilarious to Get Beat Up With Your Own Shoes’ (Video)

The actor tells the story of how he was mugged the night before the childhood photo was taken

You can now count a few Philadelphia thugs when playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

The “Cop Car” star stopped by “Conan” Thursday night, and showed off a painfully awkward #TBT photo he posted on Instagram months ago with the caption, “#TBT Ninth grade. Notice the pointy head? Got beat up the day before with my own shoes! #smileforthecamera.”

“Thats a true story. It’s hilarious to get beat up with your own shoes,” Bacon said before launching into the story from his youth spent growing up in the City of Brotherly Love.

“I was at the bowling alley playing pinball, I was on my way home, I realized I was going to be mugged — I was being chased,” Bacon said. “They caught me in the parking lot, I gave them my money … and then they had this idea that I might’ve stuffed some money in my shoes. […] All of a sudden, bam! I get smacked right across the back of the head.”

“There’s a level of humiliation to being beaten with your own shoe,” O’Brien remarked.

Bacon agreed and added, “There’s nothing more humiliating than being beaten with your own shoes, except maybe someone’s girlfriend being nauseous when she sees you on TV.”

Take a look at the photo below, and watch the video above.
