Listen to Jimmy Kimmel on iHeartRadio Talk

Turns out the twerking "fail" video that seemed almost too perfect to be real is a fake. 

Jimmy Kimmel revealed he was behind the hoax on his show Monday night when he interviewed the young lady, who is actually a stuntwoman.  The YouTube video that features a woman crashing through a table covered in candles that light her pants on fire while twerking got more than nine million views in less than a week. 

Kimmel hopes the video will help bring about an end to all twerking forever.
