Jimmy Kimmel Reveals “Worst Twerk Fail EVER” was a Hoax
Earlier this week, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel revealed during his show that a viral video released months prior of a girl catching on fire while trying to “twerk” was simply an elaborate hoax to “prove” the media would cover a non-story.
Here’s the clip from the show:
I have to admit that I had thankfully managed to avoid the news coverage of this ridiculous story. I do find it somewhat incredulous that this viral video was mentioned on the actual news.
A friend of mine did bring up the point that most of the clips Kimmel shows in his coverage are either from shows that are more “entertainment” based or simply filler for the last few minutes of the broadcast. As he said, “It’s not like this video was the leading story on any reputable news program.” I think that’s a great point.
I do remember fast forwarding this “news” story during reputable news programs though. It might not have been during their leading segments, but it was still covered nonetheless. With everything happening in the world (i.e. Syrian crisis as one example) and our multitude of domestic frailties I don’t think the video should have been mentioned on any news program.
