It’s official: Jimmy Kimmel deserves the gold medal for pranking.
We were all fooled yesterday when Olympian luger Kate Hansen tweeted out a video of what appeared to be a wolf roaming the hallways of her Sochi dorm.
Considering all the crazy stories we’ve heard coming out of Russia so far, it didn’t seem like much of a stretch.
Well, much like his twerking gone wrong viral video, turns out Kimmel was in on the joke from the very beginning.
He linked up with Hansen a few days ago. She sent him a photo of her Olympic housing and his crew got to work creating an exact replica.
They hired a wolf right here in Los Angeles and the rest, they say, is history.
Kimmel came clean last night, owning up to the epic prank:
