Sochi Olympics Wolf? Just a Jimmy Kimmel Prank, Not an Epic Sochi Fail

Pin It
Well, Jimmy Kimmel got us again.

The frightening sight of a wolf roaming the halls of an Olympic Village hotel in Sochi turned out to be just a prank.

Jimmy, who pranked us all with that failed twerking video, is back at it again, enlisting the help of U.S. luger Kate Hansen at the winter Olympics.

Given the problems we've seen in Sochi, everyone (including news outlets) bought into the possibility of a wolf on the loose.

Kate posted the YouTube video "Epic #SochiFail: Wolf in my hall" Thursday, writing, "I'm pretty sure this is a wolf wandering my hall in Sochi."

Later that day, Jimmy admitted the hoax, tweeting: "I always say, if you're going to cry wolf--get an actual wolf to cry with"

During Thursday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host explained how they filmed the prank and had Kate upload it.

Pretty sneaky, Jimmy.
