UPDATE: Watch Jimmy Kimmel And Kate Hansen Confess To Their Olympics Wolf Prank

The video above supposedly shows American luger Kate Hansen opening her hotel room door in Sochi to find a wolf casually walking down the hallway. That’s what the entire internet, including us, was lead to believe by Hansen on Twitter.

Alas, it was all another (maddeningly successful) hoax created by Jimmy Kimmel, according to the Orlando Sentinel:

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel orchestrated a hoax with U.S. Olympic luger Kate Hansen, Inside Edition reports. The syndicated magazine got confirmation of the video foolery from Sandy Caligiore, a publicist for the United States Luge Association.

You can catch Hansen at 11:35 tonight on WFTV-Channel 9. Hansen plans to Skype with the late-night shost, Caligiore said.

Damn you, Kimmel. You’ve fooled us yet again.
