“I had heard about it obviously, and, you know, you hear things and you don’t really know the story, right?” Sebastian said, explaining that he was hardly a tween when the video first hit the Internet back in the ’90s.
He continued, “So just to be able to kind of go back and go, ‘Hey, wait a minute, they had nothing to do with this thing,’ like, ‘This is how this thing was stolen, this is how it was taken,’—and it was wild enough to read and know about—I think that they deserved that being retold.”
Sebastian even reached out to Tommy Lee himself at one point.
“They’re real people,” he told E! News. “It’s a real person. Of course at some point you want to just raise your hand and go, ‘Hey, this is my name. Nice to meet you. I don’t know what you think about it, but I guess I’ll play you in this thing.’ It feels like it’s a common decent thing to do.”
