Via Best Week Ever comes this hilarious video of an NBC staffer running into Paula Deen's shot and then hiding behind the kitchen island so as not to ruin the segment. Of course, this didn't go off smoothly considering Paula lost her cool and asked if the man had a gun and if he was from this country. (The latter either because she feared illegal immigration or Muslim extremists.) Roker initially joked that the man didn't work at the "Today Show," but of course he does. Even weirder than Paula's reaction is the fact that the man didn't leave the show kitchen, but stayed hidden on the floor until Paula served him cake.
