Jimmy Kimmel reveals he's behind 'twerk fail' viral video

Reason number 259,467 you can’t believe everything you see on the Internet.

Last week, the Internet collectively freaked out over a YouTube video that showed a girl twerking against a doorway, only to be knocked over into a table (Paging Chris Farley!) and setting herself on fire. Uploaded Tuesday, it had been viewed over 9 million times. But for everyone who thought the ‘unbelievable’ video was a bit too, well, unbelievable: You were right. Jimmy Kimmel was behind it.

Kimmel broke the news on his show last night, explaining that the girl is actually a stuntwoman, they filmed the video two months ago, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Miley Cyrus and the VMA Twerk Heard Round The World. He then played a montage of news anchors showing the not-at-all-confirmed-to-be-real video.

Oprah succumbs to her need to give away free stuff on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' -- VIDEO

Making the rounds to promote her new flick Lee Daniels’  The Butler, the one and only Oprah stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to chat it up.

Unfortunately, right in the middle of her interview, Oprah succumbed to an ailment — an ailment that only ridiculously rich and powerful people have. She was worried that it would happen — and it usually does when she skips lunch. I don’t want to spoil it for you, so let’s just say that someone in the audience went home with something that they did not arrive with. Check it out here:

You get a car! And you get a car! Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Jimmy Kimmel wants to 'Channing All Over Your Tatum' -- MUSIC VIDEO


Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel debuted a music video for the vaguely explicit slow jam “(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum,” featuring White House Down costars Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx, along with Miley Cyrus, Olivia Munn, and Gabourey Sidibe. Don’t blink or you’ll miss the Matt Damon cameo. READ FULL STORY

Will Smith talks 'After Earth' disappointment on 'Jimmy Kimmel'

Will Smith obviously wasn’t thrilled with After Earth‘s box office take last weekend (it opened in third place with $27.5 million). But you don’t become one of the most charismatic actors of your generation by not knowing how to get an audience on your side — which is exactly what Smith did when he swung by Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night last night. After some pleasant chat about basketball (Smith is a partial owner of the Philadelphia 76ers), talk naturally turned to After Earth‘s disappointing weekend.

“Here’s how I think of it, Jimmy,” Smith said with a laugh. “Three is the new one.You know how many ones it takes to make a three?”

Smith went on to explain that obviously the news he was getting from his people on Sunday weren’t his favorite phone calls. “You get the [box office] information moment by moment,” he explained. “Someone is calling you every hour and I was like, ‘Uh oh.’ I felt like a fighter. It’s been over two decades since I’ve had a movie that wasn’t at number one. …That’s over now, buddy! Thanks!”

Jimmy Kimmel challenges spelling-bee champion -- VIDEO

Arvind Mahankali, the 13-year-old from New York who won the 86th Scripps National Spelling Bee last week, visited Jimmy Kimmel Live last night for what should have been a victory appearance. Instead,  Kimmel — as is the tradition — challenged him to the 10th Annual Jimmy Kimmel Live Spelling Bee.

For a kid who just won national admiration for correctly spelling “knaidel,” Mahankali may have a bit harder of a time beating Kimmel than viewers might expect. For one thing, Mahankali gets a serious case of the g-i-g-g-l-e-s when Guillermo Rodriguez shows up dressed as an actual bee. For another, Rodriguez takes some creative license with the pronunciation clues. It’s anyone’s game now!

Jimmy Kimmel's 'The Baby Bachelor' is almost too cute for words -- VIDEO

Baby Wesley is Jimmy Kimmel’s nephew, lives with his parents, has some cool dinosaur toys, and is looking for love. So Kimmel decided to make Wesley the first ever Baby Bachelor. The first episode is below and is filled with adorable kids saying adorable things. For the most part, Wesley is a gentleman, opening doors for the ladies, grabbing their hands, and giving one a kiss on the cheek when she’s crying. Still, when a beautiful blonde shows up, who is 316 months old, he can’t help but be intrigued. “I’d like to get the big girl,” Wesley says.

If you liked Pearl The Landlord, you’ll probably like this video. And look, we’re all still crying from The Office finale and this will make you so so happy, so watch it: READ FULL STORY

Billy Dee Williams gives J.J. Abrams 'Star Wars' plot suggestions -- VIDEO

Everyone has ideas for the new Star Wars movies! So, when J.J. Abrams stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel thought it might fun to ask the audience for some suggestions for the new sequels.

The first two guys are in costume and both feel strongly that, “Leia and Chewie need to do it!” The second, who we’ll assume works for Kimmel, really deserves our respect. Talking to J.J. Abrams is a nice perk of the job, but not many guys would go so far as wearing Leia’s gold bikini on national TV.

The third “audience member” is Billy Dee Williams, who played Lando Calrissian in the original trilogy. He suggests, “Two hours of Lando and beautiful ladies making love, sweet love, in the galaxy.”

We’ll let you be surprised by the last guy. Fair warning though, he has a rather crude drawing of Leia and Chewie. Watch the video below:


Jimmy Kimmel honors Charles Ramsey with fake trailer for History channel doc -- VIDEO

Charles Ramsey — the man who is simultaneously famous for eating a Big Mac, rescuing three women from a presumed decade in captivity, and giving television interviews like it was “an evening at the Apollo” — has already been fêted with an Autotuning, multiple talk show spotlights, and (now) an ad for a cable TV special, courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel. As the late-night host explained, “A star has been born.” A star who says some “hilarious s—.”

Check out the deep-voiced voice-over treatment below.


Gary Busey auditions for the Mars reality show on 'Kimmel' -- VIDEO

When news broke that there was going to be a reality show where people traveled to Mars to establish a human settlement in 2023, lots of people joked about who they would want to send up there. Well, Jimmy Kimmel has a suggestion. On his show last night, Kimmel showed the ”first official video application” for the Mars program. Wearing a tin foil hat, a shirt with the word Mars on it, and a purple cape, Gary Busey hummed and danced around a miniature solar system, claiming he should be one of the lucky few that gets to go to Mars… because he’s been there before.

”When you find yourself eating part of your calf muscle, you should not be on Mars!” Busey said. So true.
