In the YouTube clip, the girl is seen dancing around her living room doing suggestive moves and then falls. She lands on top of a coffee table with several lit candles and jumps up screaming with flames going down her leg.
The video titled, “Worst Twerk Fail EVER – Girl Catches on Fire,” got more than 9 millions hits in a one week span and had news stations and media outlets reporting on it. Even us.
Well, it turns out Jimmy Kimmel was behind the video and it was all just a hoax. He admitted on his show Monday night that the entire video was staged. Daphne Avalon, the woman in the twerk video who also works as a stuntwoman, joined him on his show as they both surprised audience members and viewers with their reveal.
On the show they re-aired the video and included an additional scene where Kimmel comes in and extinguishes the fire before smirking at the camera.
Avalon laughed with Kimmel as he said: “So there ya go. For the conspiracy theorists on the Internet who thought it was fake, you were right, it was fake – we made it up.”
