Watch Matt Lauer Spoof Sexual Harassment in This Cringeworthy Video from 2012

By Abi Travis

On the morning of Wednesday, November 29, morning TV changed forever. Matt Lauer was abruptly fired from his position as host of NBC's Today show — a job he'd held for nearly 20 years. The reason? Sexual misconduct. At first, few details were available. But as the day wore on, more shocking information came to light. Information such as that he once bought a sex toy for one of his colleagues, or that he reportedly had a button installed under his office desk that would automatically lock his office door from the inside. In light of the news of Lauer's firing, The Daily Show did some digging and found one of the most bizarre clips of morning television to ever be broadcast (and that's saying something). It features none other than Matt Lauer joking about sexual harassment in the workplace. Yes, really.
