What the...

The day before Amanda Bynes was checked into a rehab facility, a video surfaced of the actress acting erratic inside of a Manhattan boutique in New York City.

In the video obtained by TMZ and New York Daily News, the Easy A thesp walks quickly into Pookie & Sebastian, picks up a white blouse she wants to try on and then proceeds to strip down to her bra in the middle of the store instead of heading into a dressing room.

Then, she throws on the sweater – making sure to keep her oversized sunglasses on – and starts posing in front of a mirror, strumming an air guitar and dancing all around the store while she's at it.

And that was just the beginning. Amanda motions for her bodyguard to come into the store, puts her arms around his neck, twerks on him and gropes his chest and back.

"It was beyond bizarre," Pookie & Sebastian owner Kevin Matuszak told the New York Daily News. "We couldn't believe it."

At one point during the video, a sales associate asks Amanda if she's going to pay for the blouse she's been dancing around the store in. "Do I really have to buy this?" she replied, before handing over her credit card.

Alas, Amanda wasn't done in the store just yet. She started breaking out into another dance, flinging her arms in the air, and reportedly insulted a customer, a store employee told the site.

While she was dancing in front of the mirror, a middle-aged shopper supposedly asked a store clerk if a shirt she was trying on made her look "too old." Amanda jumped in on the convo, saying, "Yeah, you look old. I'm old, too. That's why I'm getting a lot of plastic surgery done."

After about 10 minutes, Amanda walks out of the store with the white blouse, but leaves her jacket and scarf there.

NYLON Magazine's IT Girl PromThe footage of Amanda in the store was captured on the same day she supposedly shoplifted at Barneys, putting a $200 hat on her head and walking out of the store.

Needless to say, Amanda has had quite the couple of weeks leading up to rehab. Aside from her alleged shoplifting incident, she was busted for DUI in Los Angeles Sept. 28, then she was kicked out of fashion school because of the arrest, and was spotted acting erratically in NYC and LA the next week.

Next, the 28-year-old embattled starlet gave a bizarre interview to InTouch Weekly, telling the mag she is engaged to a 19-year-old guy named Caleb. She went on to flash the ring around NYC.

Then, right before she was checked into a treatment facility, Amanda went on a troubling Twitter rant, accusing her dad of sexual, physical and verbal abuse.

She has since been placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours, which is expected to be extended.
