Matt Lauer really got into the Fifty Shades of Grey spirit while talking with the film’s stars, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. 

Well, at least Ellen DeGeneres made us think so.

In classic Ellen fashion, she put her own twist on the Today Show host’s interview by putting his head on a body that was more appropriately dressed for the film than the morning talk show—leather boots, studded chains, booty shorts, handcuffs and a whip. Thank you, Ellen.
