Jimmy Kimmel Is A Master Viral Video Troll (Re: Twerking Girl On Fire)

Remember that epic twerking fail where a girl named Caitlin (from Kansas City) caught on fire? Well, it turns out all the Internet sleuths were right in calling “bullshit” on the mishap. Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel owned up to the prank on his late night show, and invited the real “Caitlin” (actual name: Daphne, a professional stunt woman) on set for the full confession.

Regardless, the original video now stands at more than nine million views, so it’s “Mission Accomplished”, Jimmy. Mission accomplished.

Oh, and as the great Johnny Drama would say: “F*ck Jimmy Kimmel!”
