Here's the Truth Behind Kate Hansen's #SochiFail Olympic Wolf

Feb 21 2014 - 6:59am

In a YouTube video titled: "Epic #SochiFail: Wolf in my hall," Team USA's Kate Hansen documented a wolf walking through her Sochi accommodations. Or was it a stray dog? Either way, since the video went viral, it's come out that the wolf video was revealed to be a hoax [1], courtesy of Jimmy Kimmel. Hansen, a 21-year-old luger, already secured viral fame with her Beyoncé warmup dance [2], and now it seems that she teamed up with Jimmy to post a video of a wild-looking animal roaming her hall. Looks like we can add Internet hoaxes to the list of #SochiProblems [3], aka all the crazy logistical problems going down in the Russian resort town during the Olympics. Watch Jimmy explaining the prank below.
