Yep, That Dennis Quaid Video Was A Hoax

Thanks to Funny or Die.

Posted on April 15, 2015, at 1:48 p.m. ET


On Wednesday, Dennis Quaid put an end to the mystery that had been plaguing the internet for a solid 24 hours.

Funny or Die released a video that shows the profanity-laden meltdown was a small part taken out of a larger video, in which all the things Quaid references are literally in the frame. Many had believed Jimmy Kimmel, a known internet hoaxer, was behind the YouTube "leak." However, on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, Kimmel set the record straight, saying he wasn't involved in the prank. "It's disappointing. You play 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don't trust you anymore," Kimmel said. He also suggested that the video was a voiceover for a new cartoon, and had some footage to support that theory.

On Tuesday, Crackle announced a new show starring Quaid titled The Art of More, where Quaid plays a billionaire/art collector. Though Quaid is seemingly in an office, surrounded with art on the walls, in the video, a rep for Crackle said the network was not involved in the prank.

The video, which was posted to YouTube on April 10, started going viral on April 13, going from 4,000 views that evening to more than 1,615,000 by the time the truth came out.

The 45-second clip saw Quaid calling a colleague "Dopey the Dick" and claiming he was the only professional on set — with a few "fuckings" and "pussies" in between. It ended with Quaid storming out and yellow, "Blow me."

The actor is no stranger to pranks — he's done a few hidden camera pranks with Ellen DeGeneres over the past seven years.
