Matt Lauer's Fifty Shades of Grey Interview Look Leaves Ellen DeGeneres Tongue-Tied (VIDEO)
DeGeneres gave the Today host a BDSM Photoshop makeover
Mr. Lauer will see you now …
DeGeneres, 57, posted a video Thursday of the Today show host, also 57, interviewing Fifty Shades of Grey‘s Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. It’s a familiar sight (the interview is actually from the costars’ Feb. 6 appearance), but when the camera flashes to Lauer, well … to quote Ellen, “Just watch.”
Just as Dornan is discussing Dakota being “tied up, exposed, naked,” the shot cuts to Lauer – decked out in full BDSM gear. (Extra points for adding a little jingling sound effect when he tugs at his harness.)
Ellen’s crack visual effects team even gave fans a full body shot and a moment where Lauer flourishes his whip at Dornan (presumably because he’s been a bad, bad boy?) and brandishes a pair of handcuffs.
Cue the fan fiction in 3 … 2 …
