Awards season brings some memorable bashes, but Aaron Paul recently shared a surreal party experience to top them all.

The Breaking Bad star told Details that he was one of the lucky attendees at the Prince of Brunei’s 25th birthday celebration six years ago. At the lavish event, the actor was treated to a ride on the prince’s hovercraft among other treats. But the night managed to get even better when Paul met – drumroll – Michael Jackson.

Jackson discussed his upbringing with the actor and shared this bit of advice: “You know, if you’ve had a rough childhood or not, it’s all about forgiveness. Once you realize that, it’s fine. Everything’s fine.”

Paul then ended the uber-memorable evening by taking shots with the King of Pop. Suddenly, every other party doesn’t seem that cool.
