(KTVI) – It got more than 9 millions views on YouTube. Why? Because a woman who appeared to be “twerking” upside down on a door fell into a candle and set herself on fire!

But it was all set up, concocted by Jimmy Kimmel!  Kimmel admitted that his team set this up two months ago (long before the Miley Cyrus twerk) and just recently posted it to the internet.

In the full “editor’s cut of the video,” Kimmel enters the room and puts the fire out with a fire extinguisher.
