Jimmy Kimmel Reveals He’s Behind the Twerking Fail Video

By  | 

It's safe to say that Jimmy Kimmel has won the Internet today. Last week, a video of a girl's twerking attempt gone awry went viral, and has garnered millions of views of YouTube. However, many people (present company included) thought the video was set up and or fake, and it turns out — we were right.

On Monday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, he had "Caitlin Heller" call in via Skype where they talked a bit about the video, and Jimmy said they'd show what happened after her leg caught on fire. Any guesses as to what it was? Well, it was good ol' Jimmy with a fire extinguisher.

Turns out, Jimmy and his crew secretly filmed and uploaded the video. In fact, the girl's real name isn't even Caitlin — it's Daphne, and she's a stunt woman! Jimmy also calls out the "many, many" media outlets that fell for the prank. (Glad we weren't one of them!)

To see more of the interview, watch the video above! And we hate to be the ones to tell you this but — TOLD YOU SO!
