Sochi Olympics Wolf Video Was Jimmy Kimmel Hoax

Late night prankster Jimmy Kimmel has struck again!
Among the myriad Olympics-related viral videos that have spread across social networks during the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, a video shared online by U.S. luger Kate Hansen has been unmasked as a hoax.

In the video, seen above, a person is heard gasping upon glimpsing — through a door slightly ajar — a wolf prowling along the carpeted hallway inside the athlete’s village.

Earlier this week, US luger Kate Hansen agreed to help Kimmel execute his latest internet hoax. Kimmel pulled a similar viral prank months ago with that girl everyone thought accidentally caught on fire while twerking.

“There was a little more backlash than I thought there would be,” Hansen said on Kimmel’s show. “But it was all worth it in the end.”

Kimmel’s crew actually built an exact replica of Hansen’s Olympic dorm hallway to pull off the prank. They then hired a real wolf and took control of Hansen’s Twitter account (with her permission) to set the internet on fire.

“I started hearing people talk around the building,” Hansen said. “Security started freaking out because that technically was a breach within athlete safety. It kind of went a little crazy over here, but we handled it.”

Russian officials, who have had enough problems to deal with before and during the Games, likely did not appreciate the joke. We certainly did.
