“Jimmy Kimmel Live” already fooled America once with a fake video of a twerking girl catching fire (SEE RELATED: How Jimmy Kimmel twerked a nation), and the late night show has done it again.

Early Thursday morning, American luger Kate Hansen tweeted out a video of what appeared to be a wolf wandering the halls of the athletes’ quarters in Sochi. She titled the video “Epic #Sochifail: Wolf in my hall.”

The video rocketed around the Internet, and was posted on news sites like The Daily Caller.

But it turns out the clip was merely another stunt pulled off by Jimmy Kimmel’s team. RumorFix reported that Sandy Caligiorie, publicist for the United States Luge Association, confirmed it. Kimmel’s show worked with Hansen on the stunt.

Kimmel plans on revealing how they pulled it off on Thursday night’s show.

Once again, this proves that you can’t trust anything you see on Twitter.
