Michael revealed that the gaffe happened when he wanted to treat himself to a brand new custom saddle made by a man named Cash Cooper.

The actor revealed that he had visited Cash’s shop to discuss the project and that they kept emailing back and forth about the padded and leather-covered chair.

Michael explained that he would be very specific and go into detail about what he had in mind, but there would be gaps in communication.

He said he would email him to check in and it seemed to get awkward because he would get responses like ‘yeah, okay, haha!’

The Batman actor seemed a little taken aback by the response, but said, “And I’m going to be “okay, you know, he’s enjoying this.”

Then there was another communication breakdown before we checked in again.
