Ellen DeGeneres Matt Lauer Met Gala


Ellen DeGeneres reignited her prank war with Matt Lauer on Monday’s episode of her talk show by digitally altering footage from the 2016 Met Gala to make it appear as if the “Today” anchor had shown up not wearing pants. Watch the funny video below!

“It is known as the party of the year, and of all the parties I don’t go to, this is one of the biggest,” DeGeneres said of the Met Gala. “All the celebrities come dressed in elaborate outfits and here’s a little bit of what was on the red carpet.” The talk show host then showed clips of Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West all wearing glitzy outfits. And then Lauer was shown wearing a white dinner jacket, but completely pantless, and giving the camera a wiggle of his pixelated bare butt.

“Just when Matt thinks it’s over,” the talk show host joked. “It’s not over! Sorry, Matt.” As Gossip Cop has reported, DeGeneres and Lauer have been engaged in a long-running prank war, with DeGeneres often doctoring footage to put Lauer in embarrassing situations. One of the previous highlights was when she made it look as if he was conducting a “Today” show interview in bondage gear. Watch the video below of DeGeneres’ latest prank on Lauer!

UPDATE: After catching wind of the new prank, Lauer tweeted on Monday evening, “@TheEllenShow wait what?!?! A year of delicate peace talks down the drain? You have exposed my privates for the last time! #peepshowover.” DeGeneres amusingly replied, “Do you remember being there, or is it all a blur?”
