The legendary tale of the Minnesota teen who stuck her head in a tailpipe and couldn't get it out is adding another chapter. 

Kaitlyn Strom of Litchfield was at Winstock Country Musical Festival earlier this month when she got her head stuck in the exhaust pipe of a truck, a moment that captured the attention of the entire world thanks to a five-second video showing a firefighter preparing to cut her loose with a huge saw.

Now, the 19-year-old's rise to stardom will reach Hollywood as she and the owner of the truck, Tom Wold, will be on Jimmy Kimmel Live

"Yes we will both be on Kimmel Thursday," Wold told BMTN, which learned of the rumor swirling around Meeker County late Tuesday night. 

That'll be must-see TV for Minnesotans, so either stay up late to watch the show on ABC or set your DVR to record starting at 10:30 p.m. 

Tailpipe reaches new level of fame

Not only has the tailpipe that trapped a human head become globally popular, it's also temporarily surpassed the World's Largest Ball of Twine as the most-talked-about thing in Darwin. 

Darwin, Wold's hometown, has "The Winstock Exhaust" proudly displayed at its local tavern.
