Jason Russell, the filmmaker who made the KONY 2012 video about Ugandan Warlord Joseph Kony, was put in psychiatric care over the weekend.

He was running around a busy road, naked and screaming, and masturbating.

Jason’s wife Danica released a statement; "Jason has dedicated his adult life to this cause, leading up to KONY2012. We thought a few thousand people would see the film, but in less than a week, millions of people around the world saw it.

While that attention was great for raising awareness about Joseph Kony, it also brought a lot of attention to Jason—and, because of how personal the film is, many of the attacks against it were also very personal, and Jason took them very hard.

Jason has never had a substance abuse or drinking problem. He did some irrational things brought on by extreme exhaustion and dehydration.”

In new video just released below, Jason is seen naked and pacing back and forth on a Californian sidewalk rambling about the devil, iPhone Siri and clapping at no one in particular.
