Carlos Alazraqui sent the continuation to the video he recorded earlier in December 2009. There has been some dispute in Wikipedia regarding his Birthplace. Some Wikipedia editors insisted that Carlos was born in Sacramento, California citing information from IMDB. Some Wikipedia editors said that Carlos was born in Yonkers, New York.

There you go, IMDB is incorrect. Wikipedia Editors who said Yonkers, New York are correct.
