At this point, we think the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ parodies might be better than the actual movie! The latest spoof stars a leather-clad Matt Lauer like you’ve never seen him before — and it’s totally hilarious! Watch it right here!
Move over, Christian Grey — there’s a new S&M master in town! Watch Matt Lauer, 57, pretend to interview Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in nothing but a leather harness and lace-up boots in this sidesplitting new clip from — where else? — The Ellen DeGeneres Show!
Matt Lauer’s ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Spoof: He Cracks A Whip On ‘Ellen DeGeneres’
Fifty Shades of Grey is making people do some pretty crazy things!
A half-naked Matt somehow managed to keep a straight face as he sat opposite Jamie and Dakota while sporting a leather harness and cracking his whip at the co-stars.
Dakota for one appeared to be pretty turned on, tossing her ponytail and smiling at Matt, who then held up a pair of handcuffs and stared knowingly back at her. Kinky!
‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Recut With Steve Buscemi As Christian — Watch
Ellen and Matt aren’t the first to spoof Fifty Shades. The legendary Steve Buscemi took on the role of Christian Grey in a reimagined teaser trailer for the hotly anticipated film.
The clip replaces some of Christian’s most controversial scenes with footage from Steve’s past roles. The result? Totally hilarious. Even better then when Steve embodied the eternally ignored and under appreciated middle child Jan in the 2015 Super Bowl commercial for Snickers. Watch Ana tense up over the intense stares of Nucky from Boardwalk Empire or fawning over the vulgarities spewed by Mr. Pink from Reservoir Dogs. It’s just a whole different movie experience!
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Matt’s Fifty Shades of Grey spoof is funny? Let us know!
