According to a statement from Inside Edition, "a publicist for the United States Luge Association, Sandy Caligiore, confirms" that the video shot by Kate Hansen and uploaded to YouTube is a hoax orchestrated by talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel and says that Hansen was in on it."
Inside Edition reports that Hansen plans to Skype with Kimmel during the taping of his show Thursday.
A spokeswoman for Jimmy Kimmel Live told BuzzFeed she could neither confirm or deny whether the photo was a hoax or if Jimmy Kimmel's team was behind it.
