The Today Show does weird shit every year for Halloween, but this year was extra-embarrassing, with the cast dressed up as fairy tale characters acting out an awkward, muddled story narrated by Matthew Broderick as product placement for his upcoming animated film, The Tale Of Despereaux. It kind of has to be seen to be believed. The weirdness ramps up at 1:08, and don’t miss the banter after the “play” or whatever:
I like it when Kathie Lee gets mad that she had to play a “Grandma Wolf” (?) with a gigantic ass instead of a pretty “ethnic JLo Cinderella” like Ann Curry. Thank GOD nobody is even trying to be “sexy” this year.
