(Newser) – Jason Russell, co-founder of the controversial nonprofit Invisible Children and creator of the Kony 2012 viral video, gives his first interview Sunday since his bizarre naked meltdown on the streets of San Diego this past March. Oprah scored the big exchange, and Gawker's got its hands on a promo: "Did you go crazy?" Oprah asks. Russell, who appears calm (and dressed) in a shirt and tie, says, "That wasn't me, that person on the street corner ranting and raving and naked is not me, that's not who I am."

In an exclusive interview, Jason Russell, the creator of Kony 2012—the most successful viral video of all time—discusses the intimate details of his public breakdown.   (OWN)
