“Twerking Fail” video was a hoax! + The Morning Links

09.10.13 5 years ago 9 Comments

I admit, my initial reaction to this widely-disseminated “Twerking Fail” video, which ends in a white girl catching fire (like all good videos do), the description of which read “”I tried making a sexy twerk video for my boyfriend and things got a little too hot,” was “Wow, you couldn’t plan accidental slapstick like that in a million years.

Well, apparently you can, and Jimmy Kimmel did, as he reveals here (original video is below, after the jump). Nicely done, Mr. Kimmel, very impressive. I haven’t watched a Johnny Carson-style late night show in at least half a decade, but at this point it’s pretty obvious: Kimmel and Co are damned good at internet. (-Vince)
