To any and all who are aware of my Conan appearance in which I disparaged a particular producer on the movie “Alvin and the Chipmunks - Chipwrecked”, I would like to clarify the following; the producer in question was NOT Janice Karman, the wife of Ross Bagdasarian (the son of Dave Bagdasarian, the creator of Alvin and the Chipmunks) as some have speculated. Janice and Ross were never anything but warm, giving, and gracious to me. From the first day I walked on the set for the first movie to wrapping the third. During the shooting of Chipwrecked they went out of their way daily to make sure that (as my negative treatment was well known to everyone involved) I was happy and they understood and appreciated my situation. Even, along with the director and the A.D’s , going so far as pleading my case with said particular producer. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for everyone else involved with the movie especially Ross and Janice whose enthusiasm, energy and spirit I deeply admire and appreciate.  I am truly sorry if this caused them any grief or upset. They’re really, really nice and I can’t imagine them ever behaving that way to anybody.
