Who knew that Ellen Degeneres and Sofia Vergara were such a dynamic duo? They played off each other very well and somehow managed to keep a straight face while making fun of each other behind the scenes at the CoverGirl shoot.
"I'm dreading this, she is going to be a nightmare," Ellen says, then tries to imitate Sofia's accent, "that thick accent, 'and trying to talk, like she talks like this all the time, man!"
"I don't know, I don't understand English, I'm so sick of that routine," Ellen jokingly says.
But Sofia knows just how to play it as she teaches Ellen a little Spanish. Ellen repeats after Sofia, "Mi nombre... es Ellen. Yo hablo... español... muy feo." Meaning, "My name is Ellen. I speak Spanish very ugly," followed by Sofia's famous sinister smile.
"But do you see how hard it is to act in another language? Now you know what I do every day, it's exhausting," says Sofia to Ellen.
Playful jabs, of course, all in good fun.
The commercial will start airing in January 2012.
