The video dates from September 2013 and the actor’s quotes are presented out of context.

He was not discussing a car accident.

In September 2013, TMZ approached Walker at an airport to ask him if that was him in a “Cool Water” commercial. Walker denied it was him.

When asked who the lady was spraying oil all over the actor during the photo shoot, Walker replied, “It wasn’t even me. It was some other dude. They thought it was me.”

This quote has been lifted from the interview and has circulated as “proof” that Walker denied reports that he died on November 30. The video in circulation even has the TMZ logo on it, and TMZ has not stated that Walker is still alive.

Bottom Line

The video of Paul Walker saying “It wasn’t me” is from September 2013 when he was asked about a photo shoot. It is unrelated to the accident which took his life in November 2013.
