Caitlin Heller Twerking Fail: Girl Sets Herself On Fire (VIDEO) (UPDATED)

The word and act of "twerking" has spread like wildfire across the Internet ever since Miley Cyrus' infamous VMA performance. And, in one unfortunate recent case, the fire metaphor is a bit too apropos. Watch and see what happens in this video above:

The twerking fail clip was posted online by Caitlin Heller who writes about the insane caught-on-camera moment:

I tried making a sexy twerk video for my boyfriend and things got a little too hot :)

Update -- 9/10/13: In a twist becoming more frequent in the digital era, Jimmy Kimmel has now revealed the video to be an elaborate prank. Find out more by clicking here.
