Ellen Degeneres recounted her tit-for-tat with Matt Lauer over “Fifty Shades of Grey,” declaring the spoof she’s been perpetrating on the “Today” host over.
She must have had her fingers crossed.
Ellen Degeneres started the joke during her show Wednesday by airing a clip of Lauer’s interview with the movie’s stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson where Lauer was digitally enhanced with Lauer in nothing but BDSM gear, swinging handcuffs.
“Matt says he wants to get me back,” she says on her Wednesday program. “I think it’s time to stop this before it gets out of hand. I want to say, Matt, I’m done with the ‘Fifty Shades’ jokes.”
“You do great interviews, and speaking of interviews, let’s look at the last one you did with Vince Vaughn,” she said before airing a clip of the two talking about their fetishes.
It seems Ellen had one more spoof in her, as she fudged the tape again: Lauer’s bare feet launches onto Vaugh’s lap, with Vince then taking out a large pink feather before rubbing the host’s foot with lotion.
We’ll see if Lauer seeks revenge on Degeneres or if the spoof is actually over.
