Full Video of Dennis Quaid Meltdown Revealed – and It's a Funny or Die Sketch!
The comedy site finally resolved the mystery behind Quaid's outburst
All right, Jimmy Kimmel – you’re officially off the hook.
In the wake endless Internet speculation that the clip of the actor’s angry explosion was part of a Jimmy Kimmel Live! sketch, the comedy site posted the full-length version of the video Wednesday to its official website, proving that Kimmel is not the culprit and Quaid, 61, is not just some diva actor.
The 4-minute spoof begins with actual news footage of media outlets covering Quaid’s meltdown, including a spot of talk show host Kimmel addressing the finger-pointing he received after the clip went viral.
The sketch then interrupts with a message: “Here’s what really happened.”
Quaid attempts to get through a dramatic scene while filming, when endless distractions keep him from successfully delivering his lines. He then goes on a yelling tirade out of frustration aimed at his director, crew members and a guy wearing a full-body penis costume (the unseen Dopey the Dick from the original clip).
And it turns out all of the R-rated expletives heard in the cell phone footage were quite literal. (See it below, but consider yourself warned: the language is very NSFW.) Dennis Quaid’s On-Set Freak Out: The Full Video from Funny Or Die
“Garbage!” Quaid shouts as he points to a piled-high wastebasket. He then yells, “Blow me,” merely ordering his hairstylist to fix his lifeless locks, the full version reveals.
“This is a really crazy set,” Quaid tells the stylist.
She asks, “Yeah, you ever shot a Funny or Die video before?” to which Quaid responds, “No.”
“Dennis Quaid’s career was in no way affected by his on-screen freakout,” the parody says.
Oh, and Funny or Die assures us that Dopey the Dick never worked in Hollywood again.
