Ellen DeGeneres is continuing to have a grand old time pranking Matt Lauer!

After the sexy, R-rated S&M-themed movie Fifty Shades of Grey was released, her talk show aired a clip of Lauer's Today show interview with stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, which was digitally edited to make him look as if he were wearing, well, not very much at all, and wielding a riding crop and handcuffs. The Ellen DeGeneres Show later showed a video of what the host jokingly described as Lauer's dressing room, which showed various sex toys.

"Matt Lauer, first of all, I don't know if he thinks it's fun, but I do and that's what matters," she said on Wednesday's episode of her series, adding that she was "done with the Fifty Shades jokes."

The show then screened an edited clip of Lauer's recent Today show interview with Vince Vaughn, in which the host asks him about his real-life fetishes. In DeGeneres' version, after Lauer uses "feet" as an example (and adds that it is not a personal example), some hilarious and, arguably, disturbing visual aids involving both men are displayed, suggesting one, or both, has a foot fetish.

"Ah," DeGeneres said after it was done playing. "Oh, Matt."

According to her latest gag, it appears Lauer is not too ticklish. The Today show host has not responded to the clip.

Lauer had appeared on DeGeneres' show after the first Fifty Shades of Grey prank and jokingly vowed to get her back. He also about all the newfound attention he had received on social media thanks to her.

"I have never been so popular with certain fringe groups in our society. I've made a lot of new friends, so thank you very much," he said.

Not all viewers understood that the Today show host's S&M ensemble was digitally edited.

DeGeneres had also pulled a Fifty Shades of Grey-themed prank on Lauer's co-star Today show weather anchor Al Roker.
