Remember The Epic Twerk Fire Girl? Thank Jimmy Kimmel For That [Video]
Kimmel revealed on his show Monday night that he and his team were behind the video, which stars stuntwoman Daphne Avalon. He said the video was posted with no promotion on social media or anywhere else and still managed to rack up the huge amount of views in less than a week.
Avalon also appeared on Monday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live", where she that admitted some people who know her -- including a high school boyfriend -- thought the video was real.
Added Kimmel, "Even though the video was fake, that did not stop hundreds of news outlets from showing it. Some people even blamed Miley Cyrus, as if this was her fault.
Kimmel then aired a montage of clips from shows that reported on the video as if it were real, including ABC's "The View", CBS' "The Talk" and MSNBC.
