Patton Oswalt and His Horse Surprise Jimmy Kimmel with Big Award

Comedian Patton Oswalt pulled out all the stops last night when he showed up on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to present the host with the Webby Award for Best Viral Video. Oswalt, who worked in references to Game of Thrones, True Detective and Donald Sterling, gave Jimmy Kimmel the award for his elaborate hoax video “Worst Twerk Fail EVER – Girl Catches Fire!”, which got picked up by news shows everywhere and amassed more than 16 million views on YouTube.


The day after the video became a sensation online, Kimmel revealed that he was behind the whole thing, and invited the stuntwoman who starred in it on his show to explain how they pulled it off.

Unfortunately, a win for Kimmel in this category meant a loss for Mother Jones, which was nominated for helping capture Mitt Romney’s infamous comments about the 47%.
