When footage of Dennis Quaid yelling at his crew surfaced earlier this week, many speculated that it was simply a prank cooked up by Jimmy Kimmel. The late show host addressed those rumors on Tuesday night’s episode: “There are two dozen articles and thousands of coments suggesting that this is a prank, and I am responsible for it,” he said. “And I have to say, that’s disappointing. You play like 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don’t trust you anymore.”

The clip in question features Quaid calling his crew names, including (profanity incoming): dickhead, Dopey the Dick, zombies, and pussies. “My favorite part was this: ‘I can’t even get a line out with Dopey the Dick whispering in my ear,'” Kimmel said after claiming he had watched the video 14 times the night before. “For the next eight years, I’m planning to call everyone Dopey the Dick.”

A representative for Quaid had no comment on the video. Watch Kimmel’s bit below:
