When NBC’s famed morning show hosts posted the above 13 second-long video to The Today Show‘s Instagram account yesterday, it left fans puzzled, asking questions like:
“Why are they doing that?!?”
“What in the world led to it?!?”
“Surely, there must be a reasonable explanation, right?!?”
Well, not exactly.
According to Matt and Savannah, they were chatting with NBC New York anchor Michael Gargiulo before the show, and for some reason, he revealed to them that he had never heard the nursery rhyme “This Little Piggy” before. Why they were discussing nursery rhymes is beyond me, but immediately, Lauer and Guthrie sprung into action–and the result was, to many, a lot more creepy than charming.
I mean, sure–a lot of us have close friends and co-workers, but this incident looks so cozy that it has me wondering if it’s really the first time something like it has gone down between these two…privately. I guess Lauer isn’t quite old enough to be considered a “dirty old man” yet, but Savannah has definitely been working in the news business long enough to know that this isn’t exactly something you do on camera.
On a related note, Quentin Tarantino has been watching this video on a loop for 24 hours straight.
Man, I sure hope there was a bottle of hand sanitizer on The Today Show anchor desk.
