The TODAY host stopped by Wednesday’s Ellen to discuss his 20th anniversary hosting the daytime NBC show — which, he admits, isn’t nearly as historic as the recent 20th anniversary of Ellen’s public coming out.
But little did the anchor know their chat would include another milestone: the first time he wet his pants in front of an audience!
A smiley Matt was discussing how he and cohost Guthrie have different tastes in music when Ellen launched her attack — cuing a man (co-executive producer Corey Palent) dressed as Guthrie to pop up from that pandora’s box of a coffee table and scare the shit out of the reporter!
The 59-year-old was so caught off guard, he called Ellen “petty” and “immature” for playing such a cruel prank. Did you really think you’d get a scare-free interview, Matt?
Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to see Lauer get spooked by his deepest Freudian nightmares!
