The internet conspiracy theorists were right. The "Worst Twerk Fail Ever- Girl Catches Fire" was all an elaborate hoax, and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel was behind it.
So how did Jimmy Kimmel Live! do it? They produced a video with stunt woman Daphne Avalon twerking and posted it on YouTube. "We shot that two months ago. We didn't send it to any TV stations. I didn't tweet it. We didn't put it on any news websites. We just put it on YouTube and let the magic happen."
Kimmel says the video got nine million views in less than a week. "Some people even blamed Miley Cyrus, as if this was her fault."
