LOS ANGELES, Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A recording of Welsh-born actor Christian Bale losing his temper while working on a movie has been set to various types of music on YouTube.

Audio of Bale shouting and cursing at the director of photography on the set of "Terminator: Salvation" last summer hit the Internet this week and MTV.com said the tirade soon became the basis for an artist named RevoLucian's catchy "Bale Out -- RevoLucian's Christian Bale Remix" on YouTube.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the track had gotten more than 110,000 hits. It was posted Monday.

A note from RevoLucian on YouTube explained simply, "Christian Bale flipped out and I remixed it."

Bale's ravings were also given a drum and bass remix and a "kind of '90s electronica take," and were incorporated into the song "R U Professional" by indie rockers the Mae Shi, as well, MTV.com said.

Bale is best known for playing the Caped Crusader in "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight."
