Quaid ‘tirade’ just for show

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Christie D’Zurill a

Mys­tery solved: The vi­ral video show­ing Den­nis Quaid los­ing his tem­per on a set was staged by the folks at Funny or Die.

The full video, re­leased Wed­nes­day at www.fun­ny­ordie.com, in­cludes an intro fea­tur­ing footage from en­ter­tain­ment pro­grams that made hay with the “leaked” footage in their Tues­day broad­casts. It then puts Quaid’s per­for­mance in con­text.

The por­tion of the video that went up on YouTube on Fri­day is a slice from the mid­dle of the bit. The full ver­sion pro­vides an ex­pla­na­tion for the (scripted) pro­fan­ity-laced tirade.
