Jimmy Kimmel Pranked
Emily Blunt and John Krasinskipulled three amazing pranks on Jimmy Kimmel.

It looks as if Dennis Quaid’s infamous profanity-laced tirade was not one of Jimmy Kimmel’s famous prank videos after all.

Reports were swirling that the viral video of Dennis Quaid having a full-blown meltdown was in fact a stunt for an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

However, the late-night host set the record straight, saying he had nothing to do with it.

“I watched this a bunch of times last night,” Kimmel said on his Tuesday night show. “And when I woke up, I was being blamed for it.”

Kimmel, who has a reputation for pranks, added, “You play like 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don’t trust you anymore.”

Quaid has yet to comment on the now infamous video.

UPDATE: While it turns out it was not a prank by Jimmy Kimmel, it WAS a prank set up by Funny or Die. In the full video released today, Quaid’s rant is explained with a few more visuals.
