Chalk one up for TV host & comedian Jimmy Kimmel for pulling off a viral video hoax! The original YouTube video was posted last week and it showed a girl named, "Caitlin" Twerking upside down when her roommate walks in and knocks Caitlin onto a glass table with candles.

Entitled, "Worst Twerk Fail EVER - Girl Catches Fire!" Caitlin lets out a blood curdling scream when her clothing catches on fire. The video then abruptly ends leaving the viewer wondering what happened.

The 36-second clip became an instant hit, scoring more than 11 million views on YouTube as of Wednesday night. Numerous TV news outlets and talk shows aired the video, although some wondered if the whole "accident" had actually been staged.

As CBS News reports, on Monday night, the skeptics were proven right.
