The following Today show video contains a funny spoof video with Matt Lauer that originally aired last night on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show. This video is from the Thursday, November 29, 2012 edition of the Today show.
Yesterday, Al Roker showed up with a cold and had laryngitis. To joke around, Matt pretended to scoot over to sit farther away from him to avoid getting whatever bug Al has. So Jay Leno took that opportunity to make a spoof video of “germaphobe” Matt Lauer.
This video showed Matt Lauer ripping off his shirt so he could apply disinfectant or sanitizer all over. It was to keep from catching Al Roker’s cold or flu bug. It’s not really Matt taking off his shirt. But it’s a pretty good special effect cause it does look like him. He also had a big brush and scrubbed himself down with it.
