Invisible Children co-founder Jason Russell, the man who launched a thousand memes, was caught on tape having a meltdown.

If you want to see what publicist-speak for "exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition" is, check out the video above embedded from TMZ. San Diego Police said earlier that Russell seemed to be "acting strange" before he was detained, which could have meant a lot of things, but in this case it meant stripping down to nothing and literally pounding the pavement with his hands.

It's not clear whether this video was taken before or after Russell reportedly vandalized cars and masturbated in public.
