Caitlin Heller’s YouTube video documenting a living room twerk session-turned-inferno has racked up almost 10 million views over the past week, but it turns out to have all been a clever ruse. Tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host revealed that the entire thing, from the yoga pants to the crash of the glass coffee table, was orchestrated in advance. Oh, and Caitlin’s name is actually Daphne. It just goes to show, you can’t trust videos of people failing on the internet. Take a look at the original video and the Jimmy Kimmel segment below.
