Kevin Spacey issues another cryptic Christmas video, asks viewers to 'kill them with kindness'
Spacey in the video says, "As we walk into 2020, I want to cast my vote for… more good in this world. Ah yes, I know what you’re thinking. Can he be serious? I’m dead serious. And it’s not that hard, trust me.”
It would seem that actor Kevin Spacey sharing cryptic videos on Christmas eve has become a kind of bizarre tradition. On Tuesday, December 24, Spacey shared a minute-long video titled “KTWK”, which one can assume after watching it stands for “Kill them with Kindness”.
In a typically Frank Underwood from ‘House of Cards’ fourth-wall-breaking monologue, Spacey, dressed in a red Christmas jumper, sitting in front of a fireplace asks his viewers: “You didn’t really think I was going to miss the opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas, did you?”
“It’s been a pretty good year, and I’m grateful to have my health back. And in light of that, I’ve made some changes in my life and I’d like to invite you to join me,” said Spacey, adding, “As we walk into 2020, I want to cast my vote for… more good in this world. Ah yes, I know what you’re thinking. Can he be serious? I’m dead serious. And it’s not that hard, trust me.”
The video became more and more cryptic by the second. Spacey finished with, “The next time someone does something you don’t like, you can go on the attack — but you can also hold your fire and do the unexpected. You can kill them with kindness.”
His monologue was followed by an ominous tune.
Last year, he had shared a very similar video called "Let Me Be Frank", an obvious reference to his 'House of Cards' character that was killed off after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against the actor in 2017.
In the video, he had said, "Of course, some believe everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all. They’re just dying to hear me say that everything is true and I got what I deserved. Wouldn’t that be easy?” asking, "You wouldn’t believe the worst without evidence, would you? You wouldn’t rush to judgment without facts, would you? Did you? No not you. You’re smarter than that."
Spacey is being investigated by Scotland Yard over six claims of sexual harassment and assault that reportedly took place in London between 2004 and 2015.
A Massachusetts criminal sexual assault case against the actor, where an unnamed accuser claimed that Spacey groped him at a Nantucket bar three years ago, was dropped in July this year due to “the unavailability of the complaining witness.”
