The wild rant had the whole world trying to figure out if it was real or a prank, with David Spade just hinting about the clip just hours before the full release of the video hit the Internet.
Spade posted a photo on Instagram showing Quaid putting fellow actor Seth Green in a chokehold, adding the caption, “This Dennis Quaid video is no joke. He killed @sethgreen today @funnyordie."
Spade also tagged the photo with @funnyordie, giving props to the masterminds behind the viral video.

"Extra's" AJ Calloway got Dennis Quaid's first words on the streets of NYC yesterday after the 43-second video went viral. In the leaked video, the 61-year-old actor is seen having a meltdown, screaming and cursing on what appears to be a set. When asked if the video was real or fake, Quaid played coy with AJ only saying, "I apologize to everyone involved.”
Many thought Quaid's viral rant might be a hoax orchestrated by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who addressed the rumors during his show last night, telling the audience that he had watched Quaid's freak-out 14 times the night before and confessed his favorite part of the video was when Quaid exploded on-set at Dopey the D**k.
“You play like fifty pranks and all of a sudden people don't trust you anymore,” joked Kimmel. “Did you ever consider that maybe Dennis was doing voiceover for a new cartoon? That's right – he's playing 'Dennis Duck.'”
