Remember that twerk fail video that Jimmy Kimmel was behind last year?  If not, let us refresh your memory.

The video shows a girl making a “sexy twerk video” for her boyfriend.  While in mid twerk against her apartment’s door, her friend comes in and knocks the sexy twerker onto her coffee table, complete with lit candles.  Which of course leads to the twerker’s clothes catching fire.

After the video went viral, including being shown on numerous news outlets around the world, it was revealed Jimmy Kimmel was behind the entire thing and the sexy twerker was actually a stunt woman.

Well this amazing video won the Viral Video award at the 18th annual Webbys.

The Webby Awards was established in 1996 to award “excellence on the Internet” and is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences with over 1,000 judges made up of web experts, business figures, creative celebrities and others.
