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.
DENNIS QUAID’S outburst, captured on video, was actually staged by Funny or Die.
