Litchfield teenager Kaitlyn Strom's sudden fame led to an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Thursday evening.

The 19 year old appeared live from the Darwin Tavern in Darwin, Minnesota, where she was interviewed by Kimmel on the ABC Show.

Alongside was Tom Wold, the owner of the pickup truck that led to Strom becoming a viral star last week, after she got her head stuck in its tailpipe at the Winstock Festival.

Kimmel, after noting that the city of "Darwin" was the fitting setting for their interview, first inquired about the teenager's head.

"It's doing great, it healed beautifully," she told him.

She went on to explain the spur of the moment decision that led to her putting her head in the truck's tailpipe, saying she made the sticky mistake while she was on her way to see Miranda Lambert in concert.

"My boyfriend had put hot soapy water and vegetable oil on my head to get me out," she said.

"Why did your boyfriend bring vegetable oil to a Miranda Lambert concert?" Kimmel asked, to laughs from his studio audience.
