Too much to be true? A sketchy video surfaced this week of Dennis Quaid completely losing it on the set of his next movie. 

The R-rated footage, which quickly went viral, shows the veteran actor, 61, in the midst of a tirade. He screams at those around him, dropping copious curse words in the rant. 

"What the f–k, keep going," Quaid begins in the NSFW video, which can be seen below. "I am acting here and this d–khead wanders onto my set. I can't even get a line out until Dopey the Dick starts whispering in your ear and you're not even watching anymore." 

A bystander interjects, repeating, "Dennis, Dennis," but the Far from Heaven star shoots back, "Don't f–king Dennis, me!" 

The actor continues on, screaming, "I am doing my job here!" and "I'm a pro, this is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on." 

Quaid's rant is almost so good that viewers began to question the authenticity of the footage. Social media users raised questions as to whether the moment was actually a hoax, such as the "Worst Twerk Fail EVER" video that Jimmy Kimmel tricked audiences with in 2013. 

The clip made its way online with little context. If it is real, the shocking scene could be from the set of the upcoming movie Truth. The drama is currently filming and is the debut directorial effort of screenwriter James Vanderbilt. Quaid stars in the story about acclaimed journalist Dan Rather and a scandal involving President George W. Bush during his time at CBS News, alongside Cate Blanchett, Robert Redford, Topher Grace, and Elisabeth Moss, among others. 

Us Weekly asked Quaid about the clip at Crackle's Upfronts event in New York City on Tuesday, April 14, but he remained mysterious. "Oh I'm not gonna talk about that," he said simply.
