Twerking Fire Video a Hoax Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live [VIDEO/POLL]
Ok, I’ll admit, I fell for it and I’m pretty sure you did too! I’m talking about the video we posted online last week about the girl who was attempting a new style of twerking and ended up catching herself on fire after losing her balance when a door was opened she was twerking on.
Now I usually catch Jimmy Kimmel Live each weeknight, but I missed it last night and I learned this morning that the whole video was set up and staged by none other than Jimmy Kimmel and his staff! I learned about the video’s truth this morning on Good Morning America.
Jimmy Kimmel admits to making the video and posting it on YouTube and then sat back and watched it take off virally. Since its debut, the video has been viewed more than 9.7 million times!
If you haven’t seen the original, its below along with Jimmy Kimmel’s big reveal on the show last night. He got me on this one!
