Matt Lauer to Jimmy Fallon: ‘I Gotta Get Up Early for the ‘Today’ Show, so Cut the Bullsh*t’

Popping up on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” last night, Matt Lauer grew tired of Fallon ignoring his audience’s wishes.

“Stop beating around the bush, listen to your audience, listen to that man…it’s for his wife,” Lauer implored Fallon, who had been declining his audience’s request to perform the “Gangnam Style” dance.

“I gotta get up early for the ‘Today’ show, so cut the bullsh*t,” Lauer said, raising a boom box with the song blaring. Jimmy finally caved, but didn’t quite meet Lauer’s performance standards.
