Ellen DeGeneres Shares Video Of Matt Lauer In Bondage Gear Inspired By ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

Ellen DeGeneres Spoofs Fifty Shades of Grey With A Little Help From Matt Lauer

Ellen DeGeneres recently gave Matt Lauer a Fifty Shades of Grey-inspired makeover, and it’s safe to say that Jamie Dornan’s role as Christian Grey is safe. However, Lauer’s Today show interview with Dornan and Dakota Johnson is way more entertaining when he’s conducting it while wearing bondage gear, kinky leather boots, and tiny tight shorts.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Ellen enlisted the genius video editors who work at The Ellen DeGeneres Show to create the hilarious clip below. As you can see, Matt Lauer’s head has been placed on the body of a muscular man all decked out in a leather S&M costume. Dominant Matt cracks his whip at Jamie Dornan, and the talk show host creepily dangles handcuffs in front of Dakota Johnson while her costar chats about filming the sex scenes that make up a large portion of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Consider the video below an early Valentine’s Day gift from DeGeneres.

Ellen DeGeneres didn’t really get Matt Lauer to rock leather underwear on the Today show, but she did convince Michael Keaton to wear a very special pair of gold briefs on TV. According to the Daily Mail, DeGeneres presented Keaton with a pair of shiny gold “Ellen” brand underwear during Thursday’s episode of her talk show. The Birdman star promised to wear them to the Oscars, perhaps in hopes that they would bring him luck in bringing home a little gold man. Keaton seemed genuinely excited about Ellen’s awesome gift.

“Know that when the camera comes to me and says who are you wearing?” Michael Keaton said, holding up the golden briefs.

He then proceeded to slip on a second pair of specially-made tighty-whities that Ellen gifted him with. However, the Batman star didn’t recreate the Birdman scene that shows him running through Times Square in nothing but his underwear — instead he simply slipped them on over his pants, in true superhero fashion. You can check out Michael modeling his new skivvies near the end of the video below. He’s no Matt Lauer in bondage wear, but he actually manages to pull off the wacky look.

This isn’t the first time DeGeneres has gifted a celebrity with Ellen underwear. As the Inquisitr previously reported, she presented One Direction singer Niall Horan with a black pair last November. He proudly showed them off on his Instagram page, saying that they were a “snug fit.”

What do you think of Ellen DeGeneres’ Fifty Shades of Grey video starring Matt Lauer? Is it more entertaining than the movie starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson?
