Earlier this week, U.S. Olympic Luger Kate Hansen seemingly encountered the greatest #SochiFail of them all when she spotted what looked like a wolf wandering the halls of her dorm.

Hansen posted a video of the unwelcome guest on YouTube, and it racked up more than two million views in just a few days.

Now, it looks like the possibly scary situation was just a hoax…dreamed up by notorious prankster, Jimmy Kimmel!

The late-night host made the big reveal last night during his show and Hansen Skyped in to help explain how they made it happen.

According to Kimmel, the young Olympian, who’s originally from Southern California, sent the crew at Jimmy Kimmel Live a photograph of her dorm in Sochi, and the studio’s art department then built an exact replica of the hallway and hired an actual wolf to prance through the set.

After the video was complete, Hansen gave them access to her accounts to post it on YouTube/Twitter, and the rest is viral history!

Are you disappointed the whole thing was a hoax? Or is the fact that it’s a Jimmy Kimmel prank make the story even better? Sound off in the comments!
