Yes people, it was too good to be true!
Why would someone post an embarrassing video of herself twerking & getting burnt on the internet (usualy that’s what “friends” are for 😉
Jimmy Kimmel strikes once again as he tried (and succeeded) to make a casual video go viral without him appearing on it.
Kimmel explained that his team posted the video on YouTube without promoting it, instead choosing to “let the magic happen.” And so it did — the video received over 9 million views and spawned a sort of supercut (assembled by the Live team) of news anchors marveling over what they thought was real.
Kimmel said that he hoped this exercise would stop twerking forever, but if anything, it’ll probably just inspire more trolling and/or people setting themselves on fire for the sake of YouTube views. That could be satisfying, too.
As Kimmel said himself “Thank God nothing is happening in Syria” meaning that medias should also filter what type of information they choose to go viral slighlty better in the future!
Here’s the funny part, the explanation video only has 32k Youtube hits for the moment.
We’ll see how that goes later on today!
