The YouTube video of the “Worst Twerk Fail EVER” that spread like wildfire on social media this week is, indeed, a fake.
Jimmy Kimmel revealed the prank on his show Monday night.
According to Kimmel, he and his team provided no press for the video and did not promote it via Twitter. He stated that they “just put it up on YouTube and let the magic happen.”
I saw the video being replayed on the Today Show yesterday morning and continued to wonder if it was fake. But I shrugged it off because, well, every news outlet was airing it so it had to be real, right?
