Chad Michael Murray has announced that he will not be back for season seven of One Tree Hill in a most non-traditional method: A candid video posted to YouTube.

The video, posted by a fan who was in attendance during one of Chad’s fan-greeting sessions, features Murray blurting out that producers don’t want him back on the show. The reason? “They’re not bringing me back because they want to save money,” he said as he posed for photos. “No, actually. I’m not kidding.”

But the actor has a solution to the show’s possible character-nixing plans. “See, all the fans should go online,” he says in the video. “Start blogging and being pissed off that they don’t want me back. That’s what they should do.”
