“I just want to let everybody know that I am alive, that I’m well, and I’m OK,” he said in the video.
“Truthfully, I’m really upset that anybody had to be emotionally disturbed by what they saw today. What you saw today was a clip from a smaller video that we were shooting for a new project I’m doing called Gnarly Davidson. It’s supposed to set up and introduce the new character identity.
I want to thank everybody for their love and support and concern.”
Welp… I guess there’s no better way to create a buzz than to ‘create’ a buzz. *shrug* Congrats to Ceelo on becoming a viral trending topic!
