Jimmy Kimmel Behind Viral Video Of Twerking Girl Who Set Herself On Fire
September 10th, 2013 9:04pm EDT
Jimmy Kimmel successfully pulled off one of the biggest pranks ever on the entire world last week thanks to a viral video he was behind on YouTube.
A video of college girl Caitlin Heller doing the latest dance craze, "Twerking," became popular last week in the wake of the "twerking" craze that was recently started by former Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus.
Caitlin attempted to take her moves to a new level in a "sexy twerk video for [her] boyfriend" by trying out the dance while doing a handstand -- but the results were disastrous.
When a friend entered her apartment, Caitlin fell atop of her coffee table, shattering it and ending up with her pants on fire from several burning candles she had on it.
Turns out the 37-second video was just a prank being played by Kimmel for his late night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Kimmel revealed that he was behind the whole thing during his show Monday night, talking live with Caitlin -- who is actually a stuntwoman named Daphne Avalon. He asked her why the video cuts off so abruptly after she sets herself on fire, and she says it was because "it got a little intense".
She also said that she had the rest of the video to share, and when it was revealed, none other than Kimmel himself barges in with a fire extinguisher to put out the flames on "Caitlin's" leg.
Kimmel revealed that the video was posted without fanfare or promotion to see what happened, and after a week it was played over 10 million times.
The video also got a lot of attention from local and national news networks.
