Twerk Fail Video Was A Hoax

Via HuffPo reports:

If you’ve been on the Internet in the last week, you most likely saw a video entitled “Worst Twerk Fail EVER – Girl Catches On Fire!” In the video, a girl performs a suggestive dance routine that goes completely awry, ending with the young lady apparently catching on fire.

The video instantly went viral, racking up over 9 million views in less than a week. Multiple TV and news outlets — including this site — reported on the video at face value. But until Jimmy Kimmel interviewed her on his talk show on Monday night, no one got the full story behind the viral video.

Turns out the entire video was a hoax staged by Kimmel and his show. In the extended version of the clip, Kimmel walks through the door and extinguishes the fire.

Kimmel interviewed the woman, who in actuality is a stuntwoman named Daphne Avalon. “We didn’t send it to any TV station, we didn’t tweet it,” Kimmel said. “We just put it on YouTube and let the magic happen.”
