On Tuesday morning's "Today" show, Matt Lauer and Al Roker performed an inspired rhythmic gymnastics routine that easily qualifies as must-see TV. After a lesson in ribbons and hoops from Canadian rhythmic gymnastics superstar Alexandra Orlando, the pair took to the mat for what gymnastics analyst Tim Daggett described as "unprecedented male tandem rhythmic gymnastics."
"Remember this, Tim," his co-analyst Elfi Schlegel joked. "This is all fine and well but the Russian morning show hosts, they still have to go."
Watch as Matt and Al twist and turn to Gary Wright's "Dream Weaver," with a special cameo from Brian Williams:
