I stand by that, but not by a vow I made to myself to never talk about twerking again.
|Jimmy Kimmel fessing up with |
the stunt woman who helped him make
the fake twerking video that went viral last week.
In last week's screed, I said a video of a twerking disaster that went viral was probably fake.
I was right again. Just for the record, the fiery twerking disaster was a sketch produced by Jimmy Kimmel.
He 'fessed up to the "deception" last night on his show.
The woman who twerked, fell and burst into flames in the video was a professional stuntwoman.
Kimmel said he just put the video out there without promoting it, to see if it would go viral. It did. He and I are amazed at how many media outlets reported on the video at face value, without even mentioning that it could be a fake.
Um, you can't believe everything you read on the Internet, folks.
Yeah. I'm twerking madly right now as I type this. It's true! It's on the Internet, so it's true!
Kimmel said he hopes his fake twerking disaster video will end twerking forever.
I can't agree with you more, Jimmy!
But it turns out twerking isn't a new fad. I found this great video on BoingBoing of a woman twerking in 1910. Seriously! To be honest, it's probably the only twerking video I'll ever like
Watch and see if you agree:
