When Twerking Goes Wrong: This Girl is On Firrreee! (Updated: It was Jimmy Kimmel’s Prank)

I’m sick of talmbout and hearing about twerking, as I’m sure you are too. We can all blame Miley Cyrus for that. But I promise that the video below will be worth your while. Caitlin decided to make a twerk video for her boyfriend and tragedy ensued. Watch what happens when twerking goes wrong and shit gets real.

I. HOLLERED! Madam failed with such flying (or falling) colors!

The fact that she was so enthused for thus twerk session and then decided to get hype with it to do it against a door that wasn’t locked was her first mistake. So when the door opened and she fell, I was already cackling. But when she started screaming because she caught on fire, the old me basically passed away. I COULD NOT BREATHEEEE from laughing so hard!

Her friend’s “OHMYGAH” only made me laugh even harder.

WHY would you do a handstand a couple of feet away from open flames/candles?!? That’s where her dumbass went wrong mostly. YOU ARE NOT THE GOLDEN CHILD! Girl, I can’t.

Here’s the GIF, for your continuous entertainment (from imgur):

Twerk Fire gif


The moral of this story is: be upright when you twerk. don’t twerk against an unlocked door. don’t twerk in a room full of open flames. don’t twerk.

I’m laughing because I know she’s ok. Since she’s the one who uploaded the video to YouTube.

Chile… who knew twerking could be a danger to your health like this?

Am I the only one who keeps looking at the GIF and crying laughing? Surely I cannot be. This is the best thing ever.

P.S. if you want to cry laughing, watch this video of the little girls who tried to twerk like their mamas taught them. Spoiler alert: they failed miserably.

UPDATE: This was a prank by Jimmy Kimmel. He got us ALL! “Caitlin” is actually a stuntwoman named Daphne!

Best prank ever??? Possibly.

    Hilarious. I lost life and got it back once I watched it again. The funniest part is her friend, her legs move so fast when she is jumping up and down in shock. My BFF, had better haul azz and extinguish the fire off my non-twerking behind. She can flash dance later.

        LOL@ feet don’t fail me now. I was thinking her feet looks like Fred Flintstone’s feet when he’s revving up to get his car to get going. I’m showing my age@ Fred Flintstone. LOL!! But yeah, that bit is classic with her feet!!

  3. September 5, 2013 at 11:42 pm

    Somebody should have taught her “stop drop and roll”. We’ll have to get Juicy J on that.

    The video is removed so I’m sad I can’t hear her reaction but that .gif gave me PLENTY!
    Ma’am! I can’t even say she tried it because she didn’t even get the chance before she got lit up!

    I am out of lives and unlike candy crush, I can’t ask a friend. This girl needs to stop watching Miley and start watching the Smokey the Bear commercials. “Only you can prevent apartment twerking fires”

    PS: the video is still out there. Its floating around on FB

  8. September 6, 2013 at 12:37 am

    I want twerking to go the way of the Dodo Bird quick fast and in a hurry. Alas, I might as well be entertained with the failed attempts of the masses.

  10. September 6, 2013 at 3:31 am

    Ms Luvvie I do not know how I am going to pay my bills after I get fired for excessive noise I just madein this here office. I was not expecting that at all and the laughter that came from the pit of my belly pretty much woke up and/or alarmed everybody in this office.

    I cannot be the only one who cringed. Falling on that table like that had to hurt…*shudders* then catching on fire. Jesus.

    • September 6, 2013 at 6:34 am

      She did have some good handstand hang time before hitting the table, tho…

      • WhiskeyOnTheRox
        September 6, 2013 at 1:43 pm

        I was also impressed by that handstand after the door bucked her off.

    No one else noticed the liquor on the table that acted as an accelerant? I feel bad for the dumb, sore, seared, girl.

    • Gracie
      September 6, 2013 at 12:54 pm

      Subrosa, I noticed that! I knew once I clicked play that this wouldn’t end well . . .

  13. September 6, 2013 at 6:31 am

    I liked how she was preparing her twerking space and music. You can tell the choice to handstand against the door was a last-minute thought.

    “I am not doing enough just bounc…I know! Imma just do a handstand like I saw those Black girls with actual asses did! I ROCK!”

    Maybe twerking needs to include instruction on Stop, Drop, and Roll.

    Had this been my roommate, after I had helped her dumb azz put out the fire and made her pay for my coffee table she busted, I would have simply said “That’s what you get,” because seriously, that’s what your no-booty having, culture appropriating, Hannah Montana impersonating self gets. Splinters, glass in your crack and scorched lulu lemon yoga pants. That said, hysterical gif!

    • Anika

    Uh, advanced Twerk move when you probably can’t chew gum and walk simultaneously? Thats a fail.

    September 6, 2013 at 8:38 am

    Instead of twerking it, she should have been stop,”pop,lock & drop” and rolling it LOL. I guess she forgot in the heat of the moment :/

  19. SanTara
    September 6, 2013 at 10:55 am

    LMAO!! I can’t stop watching this video. She started off more like the Sun drop commercial and to get that out of her head she went up against the door. I’m so glad that bottle of alcohol didn’t cause more problems. Her twerk went up in smoke. And the friend with the Scooby Doo legs. lol She revved up real good before she actually ran.

    • MsZ
      September 6, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    I am on my planning period at school and opened this. I forgot it was kids in the class across the hall. I just hollered and caught myself. I have hot tears rolling down my cheeks right now. That is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while.

    Ok first thing I was eating my breakfast and because I knew this was put here by Luvvie I knew it would be hilarious, but I nearly swallowed my sandwich whole and chocked. I almost literally died with laughter at this stupidity.

    This twerking ish must end, people in Africa and the Caribbean have been wukking-up ?(for that is what twerking is) for generations, these wannabe classless hootchies like Miley are only making a joke out of it. Yes I know I my be taking this to seriously but you get my point.

    But I digress This video is HILALARIOUS and Luvvie you are the pied piper to us fools.

    1)First off I still think Twerking should mean people who tweet at work.
    2)Since I am VERY accident prone I would have made sure that I was in an empty room before even thinking of trying this.
    3)Using candles to summon the spirit of dance does not mean your going to have a good time of it.
    4)Daphne at the freakin’ door is not your friend – excuse me did she knok first, nope she just came right on in.
    5)Now that I think of it maybe Daphne was supposed to be her spotter and she was running late.

    The problem is that these young girls are watching folks like Miley and a bunch of other random people twerk instead of the OFFICIAL TWERK TEAM. When they twerk, the room is SPOTLESS, no furniture, no portraits, and DEFINITELY no flammable items! Attempt to learn something right before you post that sh*t online ladies. -______- LOL

    This was like watching the usual useless antics at a frat party gone wrong. I just need folks to stop with the foolishness.

  42. September 10, 2013 at 12:31 am

    I saw on BuzzFeed earlier where Jimmy Kimmel showed that he fooled us all and I ain’t even mad!
    Well played, Mr. Kimmel…well played.
