Jason Russell’s Meltdown Explained?
We are sure that you have all seen the video of Jason Russell (the man behind the Kony 2012 Video) having a very strange naked meltdown on a public street. If you haven’t seen the video yet, check it out here.
Anyway, this left a lot of people wondering, “What the f**k is he on?” Everyone thinks he had a bad reaction to some drugs or something. However, his family has just released a statement that might explain the whole thing,
“We would, again, like to make it clear that Jason’s incident was in no way the result of drugs or alcohol in his body. The preliminary diagnosis he received is called brief reactive psychosis, an acute state brought on by extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration.
Though new to us, the doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks. Even for us, it’s hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention – both raves and ridicules, in a matter of days.”
The family says that Russell will remain under hospital care for a number of weeks and after that, the recovery process could take months before he is “normal” again.
We are supposed to believe this? No. We here at The Daily Fix know what really happened that day. Jason Russell was stressed, that is true. He was stressed and exhausted, but not because of all the attention and criticism. He was stressed because he didn’t want to become a one hit wonder. He didn’t just want to have one viral video, he needed more! Jason was going to make a video of him lip-syncing, ’Party In The USA’ but he thought lip-syncing videos were outdated.
He thought long and hard and finally figured out what was “in” right now. Meltdowns! Meltdowns are in, we love to see celebrities have meltdowns and we love them even more if they are caught on tape. So, Jason Russell did it. He did what so many others before him failed to do; he made a second viral video.
What a freaking genius. We applaud you.
