Kate Hansen’s the Olympian Who Cried Wolf!

US Olympic luger Kate Hansen tweeted a video showing a wolf in her Sochi dormitory hallway, causing a media stir and launching a debate over whether the animal was a wolf or a dog – or a mix of the two. Hansen’s tweet indicated the wolf was just wandering the hall while she filmed it from the safety of her room. In reality, the wolf video was put together by Jimmy Kimmel with Hansen’s help. Hansen forwarded Kimmel a photo of her hallway at the Sochi Olympics, and Kimmel’s staff recreated it and then hired a real wolf to walk through the fake hallway. The resulting video was featured on hundreds of media outlets before Kimmey and Hansen revealed the prank.
