Epic Twerk Fail Video A Hoax Orchestrated By Jimmy Kimmel

The Innanets were in tears when a video surfaced of a girl allegedly named Caitlin Heller tried to create a sexy twerk video for her boo only to catch fire when an upside-down twerk went wrong and she slammed into a glass table with candles.

Well, the joke’s on us because talk show host Jimmy Kimmel revealed Monday that he was the mastermind behind the entire thing. The clip features stuntwoman Daphne Avalon and according to Kimmel, was posted with no social media promo and still managed to rake in upwards of 9.6 million views.

“Even though the video was fake, that did not stop hundreds of news outlets from showing it,” he said. “Some people even blamed Miley Cyrus, as if this was her fault.”

But it seemed Kimmel had an even bigger goal in mind, telling Avalon, “Thank you for helping us deceive the world and hopefully put an end to twerking forever.”
