Wolf In Sochi Hotel Was Actually Jimmy Kimmel Prank

Posted: Updated:

If you've been following any of the news from Sochi, you know there are stray dogs running all over the place.

Well, yesterday on Good Day, FOX 29 showed the video from Kate Hansen, a member of the US Luge team. The video purportedly showed what appeared to be a wolf wandering the hall of her dorm.

However, now we've learned someone was behind the video! And he's done a trick like this before! Jimmy Kimmel fools us again!

The talk show host was the mastermind behind the prank and got the Olympian to help him out.

The video got more than a million views before Kimmel admitted to making the video.

He tweeted, "I always say, if you're going to cry wolf -- get an actually wolf to cry with."

Many media outlets fell for the prank, including FOX 29. Jimmy even called us out on it with a compilation of the best news coverage of his prank.

Kimmel explained how he pulled off the prank saying that his crew built a replica of the hallway and they rented a wolf and used a camera phone to record it.

Last September, you may remember Kimmel fooled everyone with the "Worst Twerk Fail Ever" video in which he got a stunt woman to twerk her way into a candle and catch her leg on fire.
