Tailpipe teen is taping her segment on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' at a bar in Darwin

Literally hundreds of feet from the giant ball of twine.
Publish date:

Already iconic for the World's Largest Ball of Twine, Darwin will be the center of Minnesota popularity on Thursday thanks to the 19-year-old woman who stuck her head in the tailpipe of a truck at the Winstock Country Music Festival. 

Litchfield's Kaitlyn Strom, AKA "tailpipe teen," will be interviewed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Thursday night. Strom will be joined by the owner of the truck, Tom Wold, and will record the segment from inside the Darwin Tavern. 

Yes, the girl who received an underage drinking violation after sticking her head up a tailpipe is going to be interviewed on national TV, from a bar.

Makes total sense.

Darwin Tavern, located on Hwy. 12 about 60 miles west of the metro area, posted on Facebook that they plan to tape the segment with Kimmel around 7 p.m. It'll play back on ABC sometime after the show begins at 10:35 p.m.

Imagine the possibilities if you attend this once-in-a-lifetime event. Not only might your face wind up on national television, but you could say you hung out with the tailpipe teen, and if you're of age, you have a drink or two for a helluva lot cheaper price than you can get in the Twin Cities. 

Not only that, you're also only 420 feet from the World's Largest Ball of Twine, so you could partake in two national wonders on the same day. Like we said, it's a once-in-a-lifetime chance.
