Even though it was obvious enough for longtime YouTube viewers to spot, apparently a lot of folks in the media didn't catch on quite so quick.

Everyone knows late-night host Jimmy Kimmel loves pranks, and this time, his target was the entire Internet. And it worked: The YouTube clip that went viral last week of the “Worst Twerk Fail EVER” (featuring a girl catching on fire during a twerk session gone wrong) was actually an elaborate hoax set up by Kimmel, he confirmed on his show Monday. “To the conspiracy theorists on the Internet who thought the video was fake, you were right,” Kimmel announced proudly of the video, which attracted more than 9 million views in six days. “It was fake, we made it up.”
At first, Kimmel kicked off the segment on Monday pretending he had landed an exclusive interview with the star of the video, a girl named Caitlin, who admitted she was embarrassed, but a friend persuaded her to put up the clip. Cut to: The “director’s cut” of the video, which featured Kimmel bursting through the door in the end with a fire extinguisher.
He also delighted in showing the countless news outlets that fell for the hoax and played the video on air, from ABC’s “The View” to CBS’s “The Talk” to the fourth hour of the NBC’s “Today” show. “Good thing nothing’s happening in Syria right now,” Kimmel deadpanned.
Chris Rock with a PSA for any voters who are worried that President Obama might be too black for them. As Rock reminded everyone, President Obama is white and might even be whiter than his opponent, Mitt Romney.

After John Boehner cried yet again, this time for a Congressional Gold Medal ceremony to honor the 19th century Italian artist Constantino Brumidi (I have no idea who he is, and probably Boehner didn't either) who came to the United States to seek fame and fortune, Jimmy Kimmel decides to poke more fun at Mr Waterworks.
President Obama didn't pass up a chance to take some jabs at the Republicans among others during this year's White House Correspondents Dinner, and I think he may have upstaged the featured comedian this year, Jimmy Kimmel.
Here are some of the better lines from the first clip:
We gather during a historic anniversary. Last year at this time, in fact on this very weekend, we finally delivered justice to one of the world’s most notorious individuals.
Cue to a picture of "the Donald" who was the butt of the jokes during last year's dinner.
This year, we gather in the midst of a heated election season and Axelrod tells me I should never miss a chance to reintroduce myself to the American people. Tonight, this is how I'd like to begin. My name is Barack Obama. My mother was born in Kansas. My father was born in Kenya and I was born of course in Hawaii.
Followed by a wink that even had Newt Gingrich laughing.
Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton. Four years later, she won't stop drunk-texting me from Cartegana.
Anyway it's great to be here this evening in the vast, magnificant Hilton ballroom, or what Mitt Romney would call, a little fixer-upper.
Jimmy got his start years ago on The Man Show. In Washginton, that's what we call a Congressional hearing on contraception.
Even Sarah Palin's getting back into the game, guest hosting on The Today Show, which reminds me of an old saying, what's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious.
Here's part two and some quotes from that clip are below the fold.
ABC's Jimmy Kimmel announced Tuesday a new educational film by Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann.
"I like when politicians who screw up go find like a single sentence in the back of a high school history book and then use that as their defense, as if that's what they meant the whole time," Kimmel said. "And that's what she's doing. And not only is Michele Bachmann sticking to this Founding Father thing, she's working on -- I don't know if it's a documentary or some sort of educational film, but it's something to teach kids about American history."
"In 1775, Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams set sail across the Delaware River to tell the King of England they had enough of his liberal agenda," an actor posing as Bachmann explained in the film. "King James called Napoleon and together they decided to kill America."
"They sent the Nina, the Piñata and the Santa Maria to fight. But then, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln gathered an army to turn back the big government dictators. They told Paul Revere to ride his horse to Frodo. But then, John Wilkes Booth showed up and killed Lincoln. But there was still hope, because Jesus appeared on the face of the Liberty Bell and he froze John Wilkes Booth in carbonite. And the liberal homosexuals sailed back to their gay country, while Americans claimed their land and drank beer. And that's how freedom was born."
Countdown's mashup of the late night comedians' reaction to Sarah Palin's book tour. Lawrence O'Donnell promised more to come as long as the tour continues. Kind of like shooting fish in a barrel but the Moose Hunter made herself an easy target.
