Earlier this month, Ellen DeGeneres pulled a hilarious prank on Matt Lauerthanks to her clever editing team—making it appear as if the Today show host was wearing a Fifty Shades of Grey S&M style ensemble while interviewing the film's stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.
And not only did the joke produce a whole lotta laughs, but it also caused some problems for the 57-year-old television anchor, leading him to scold his prankster pal during his appearance on Thursday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"I have not yet decided if we are on speaking terms," the veteran journalist said as he took a seat. "Thank you for helping me make so many new friends, Ellen."
DeGeneres then proceeded to show the audience the "doctored" clip, which she insists they only edited "just a little bit," leading to an eruption of laughter.
