Christian Bale's 'Terminator' Meltdown Freakout at Shane Hurlbut
Christian Bale, he of cloaked, caped Dark Knight fame and soon to be Terminator: Salvation infamy has been recorded in the midst of a three-minute, on-set meltdown — a total tirade and full-on freak-out targeted in all of its venomous, vitriolic glory at the film's unassuming Director of Photography -- one Shane Hurlbut.
And what prompted the unleashing of this American Pyscho-esque raging wrath?
Hurlbut allegedly stepped into the frame during one of Bale's ever-precious scenes, apparently ruining an otherwise perfect performance.

But leave it to the interwebs to strike quickly with an amazing assortment of quickly-produced remixes — this one courtesy of @monkeysplat and the good folks at RadarLA.
Despite the fact that this insanity now begs for someone to post an audio/video mashup of the beats, freakout, and a slew of mad samples from previous Bale films. What's that, you say? It's already been done?
But it doesn't end there, YouTuber jeffreycoy has made an incredible video mashup that incorporates audio from Bale's insane rantings into an incredible, reworked version of the trailer for the upcoming romantic comedy "He's Just Not That Into You".

Nevertheless, this "Balefail" also begs two inevitable questions:
1) Could this be an elaborate hoax of MC Joaquin Phoenix rap proportions?
