Jimmy Kimmel Just Fooled Us All with Twerk Fail Video



Remember that girl on fire twerking video that seemed legit? Turns out it wasn't.

While 63% of toofab's audience thought the video of a girl named Caitlin Heller catching fire while trying to make a sexy video for her boyfriend was legit, it was exposed as a hoax set up by Jimmy Kimmel himself.

An extended version of the YouTube clip shows Kimmel barging through the door and putting out the flames with a fire extinguisher. 

And Caitlin, she's really a stunt woman named Daphne Avalon.

The clip went viral online and was covered by actual news outlets -- with some of them seriously warning of the dangers of twerking.

"Good thing nothing is happening in Syria right now," Kimmel joked after showing a montage of reporters talking about the video.
