Ellen DeGeneres is pretty plugged in when it comes to media and pop culture.
So of course she knew how big of a hit the film Fifty Shades Of Grey would be!!
In honor of the movie, Ellen whipped up a hilarious video, remixing an interview Matt Lauer did with the film's stars, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
She didn't change the interview much, all she did was change Matt Lauer's body into that of a man in some serious BDSM bondage gear!! Ha!

The funniest part is how apparently Today show viewers thought it was real!! Lauer even had to say on air that he didn't actually wear bondage gear!
So what did Ellen do? She apologized to Matt, then showed a "totally real" clip of Al Roker… in nipple tassels!!
That's all we're saying. Go check out the video (below) and prepare yourself…
