Ellen DeGeneres reignited her long-running prank war with Matt Lauer by scaring the “Today” show anchor on Thursday’s episode of her talk show. Watch the video below!

Lauer’s appearance on the daytime show was cordial and ordinary until the host decided to terrorize her guest. The two first congratulated each other on their recent milestones, the 20th anniversary of DeGeneres coming out as gay and the 20th year of Lauer hosting “Today.” The pals also noted they were both soon turning 60, and the newsman discussed President Donald Trump’s adversarial relationship with the media.

But when Lauer began talking about his disdain for “Today” co-host Savannah Guthrie’s taste in music, a man wearing a blonde wig and dress jumped out of a piece of fake furniture situated next to the couch. The journalist screamed before getting up from his chair and pacing around the stage, adding, “It’s so petty. It’s so childish.” He added, “Now I wet my suit. It’s the only suit I have and I’m wearing your underwear in this suit.” A delighted DeGeneres insisted this latest prank was her “favorite so far,” to which Lauer asked, “What is the deal with you?”

As Gossip Cop has reported, the two TV personalities have been engaged in a friendly prank war for quite some time. DeGeneres previously altered footage of Lauer at the 2016 Met Gala to make it appear as if he walked down the red carpet without wearing pants. For another gag, DeGeneres edited Lauer’s interview with Adele to make it seem like he was inappropriately flirting with the singer. For his part, Lauer once filled DeGeneres’ car with 20,000 ping pong balls. Watch the latest prank below!
