Remember the viral video of a girl who caught fire while twerking? Well, turns out that it was a hoax prank orchestrated by Jimmy Kimmel.
On Monday, the comedian revealed the director’s cut of the video, showing the supposed ‘Caitlin Heller’ on fire after falling on a table with lit candles, but Jimmy put the fire out with an extinguisher and left us a thumbs-up sign on camera.
Many media outlets- including ENTmania.com – were deceived into thinking that the whole thing actually happened. But alas, we were wrong, obviously.
Despite everything however, the video kinda achieved its purpose: To show the world how stupid and dangerous that dance move is. In the words of Jimmy himself, ‘Thank you for helping us deceive the world and hopefully, put an end to twerking forever.’
