Move Over Miley Cyrus! This Twerking Video Is Literally On Fire

Those of us with teenage daughters can only ROFL (I believe that is a down-with-the-kids term for laughing a lot) in hysterics at this video in the surefire knowledge that it is precisely what our own offspring get up to when we're not looking.

For this young lady's attempt to copy Miley Cyrus's daft 'twerking' routine ended up going horribly wrong.

The girl, called Caitlin Heller, attempts a hand stand while twerking up against her door - when someone opens it.

Poor Caitlin falls backwards, smashing a table – and then things go from bad to worse as her trousers catch fire from the lit candles on the table.

Luckily Caitlin seems to have recovered from the freak incident as she uploaded the video to YouTube where it has so far attracted more than 500,000 views.

She wrote: "I tried making a sexy twerk video for my boyfriend and things got a little too hot!" She manages to laugh at the situation, calling the video 'Worst Twerk Fail EVER'.
