This is not a video for you if you are offended by the F word. But when a celebrity blows a gasket and the F bombs fly it can still cause quite a stir in the media and clever video editors will turn your tirades into hilarity. In 2009 when Christian Bale was filming Terminator and the director of photography Shane Hurlburt clearly did something to annoy the actor. Bale’s expletive-filled rant was caught on tape. Bale said the outburst was an attempt to stay in character. He apologized, but only after the audio tirade ended up on YouTube.
Just days after the sound went viral, the clever folks at Slate Video combined Bale’s rant with other famous celebrity rants: Lily Tomlin’s potty mouth on the set of I Heart Huckabees, fighting with bile-spewing director David O. Russell; Chris Berman going into anchor rage on ESPN; and that chestnut from Bill O’Reilly’s Inside Edition days, when a miscued teleprompter unleashed his effing wrath. There’s even a cameo appearance from Alec Baldwin, whose foul-tempered voice mail to his daughter was leaked in an epic divorce battle. Thanks to cutout animation the ranting celebrities all charge onto the sam stage, their screaming heads edited into a perverse battle of the f bomb.
The result, as long as you don’t mind foul language, is f-ing hilarious.
