For any fan of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” it was a spectacular bit of footage.

David appeared on “Conan” last night to promote “The Three Stooges” and he explained exactly what precipitated the outburst.

“I had a ticket and they told me the first two hours are free. So I drove up to the exit,” David explained. “I tried to put the ticket in, but it wouldn’t fit in the slot. And it said you owe five dollars. And I’m yelling, ‘I get two hours for free!’ And I get no answer.”

“It’s a machine,” O’Brien joked. “What happens when you yell at your coffeepot?”

Really, you need to listen to David tell the story. So do that below. Watch the full episode here.
