Behold: Morning news-show hijinks! Elton John is running a YouTube contest in which people are making their own videos for “Benny And The Jets,” “Rocket Man,” and “Tiny Dancer,” three classic songs that never had videos. And the cast of the Today show took this as an opportunity to wear goofy wigs and fake mustaches, dressing up as roadies and backstage types at what appears to be a ’70s Elton John show. I think Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are supposed to be groupies? You can watch it all unfold below.
