Everyone has been talking about ‘that video where the girl catches fire while twerking’ that’s been racking up millions of views on YouTube.

And last night (September 9) Jimmy Kimmel revealed that he was actually the one behind the whole thing during a segment on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

Kimmel brought stuntwoman Daphne Avalon (she’s called Caitlin Heller in the clip) on the show and began the interview via Skype, though he shortly joined her behind the webcam to divulge that she was actually live in the studio.

Jimmy shared, "To the conspiracy theorists on the Internet who thought the video was fake: You were right it was fake. We shot the video about two months ago. We put it up and didn't send it to any TV station. I didn't tweet it, we didn't put it on any websites. We just put it up on YouTube and let the magic happen."

“Thank you for helping us deceive the world and hopefully put an end to twerking forever," added Kimmel.
