After Netflix removed the actor from House of Cards, Kevin Spacey has maintained a low profile throughout 2018. This all changes with the sudden debut of a seemingly homemade video the actor uploaded to YouTube on December 24.

Entitled Let Me Be Frank, everything about the video nods to House of Cards, where Spacey spent five seasons as Frank Underwood. The clip is also a seemingly indirect response to the recent sexual assault charges filed against Spacey, which will yield the actor’s arraignment in January.

Over the course of just over three minutes, Spacey — as Underwood — addresses the camera in a fourth-wall-breaking manner in line with the manner the technique was utilized for House of Cards. “I know what you want,” he says. “I shocked you with my honesty, but mostly, I challenged you and made you think. … So we’re not done, no matter what anyone says. And besides, I know what you want. You want me back.”

Spacey continues:

“I can promise you this. If I didn’t pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I’m certainly not going to pay the price for the things that I didn’t do. … of course, some believed everything and have just been waiting with baited breath to hear me confess it all. … But you wouldn’t believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn’t rush to judgments without facts, would you? Did you? No, not you. You’re smarter than that.”

Check out the original Tweet below and watch the clip in full above. Netflix reportedly has no comment on the impromptu video.
