What you're about to watch, you will never be able to unsee: Matt Lauer in bondage

The news show has been sharing multiple clips in the buildup to the release of the film, and Ellen DeGeneres decided she'd had enough of seeing the teasers, so she decided to make her own.

During Thursday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, DeGeneres posted a clip of the Today show host chatting with stars Jamie Dornan — who plays sadomasochistic billionaire Christian Grey — and Dakota Johnson — who stars as Anastasia Steele — but Lauer had a few extra props during the interview.

"The Today show has been showing exclusive clips for the past two weeks, and they've been interviewing the stars," DeGeneres said. "Boy, they're getting into it. I was watching this morning and Matt Lauer… just take a look!"

The timing of the clip is also superb because Johnson looks as though she is super-uncomfortable throughout the interview.
