Even wizards aren’t immune to intoxication, as Ron Weasley proved when he appeared on The Tonight Show to wish Harry Potter a happy birthday Tuesday.

Simon Pegg played Weasley in the bit, which involved him clutching a bottle of Jack Daniels and attempting to disrobe.

This isn’t his first time playing a drunk version of the Harry Potter character: Pegg appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2013 to sing happy birthday (or rather, attempt to sing happy birthday) to Potter. Watch his most recent performance below.
