Al Roker and David Gregory had some laughs at Savannah Guthrie's expense on Thursday's "Today."

The two men pranked their co-host into eating a burger wrapper. How'd they do it? Natalie Morales had just finished reporting on a Brazilian chain offering burgers in edible wrappers. Gregory brought out a plate of burgers, claiming that executive producer Don Nash had them flown in from Brazil for them to try.

Gregory pretended to take a bite, while Guthrie sunk her teeth right in. When she realized that the wrapper was just regular paper, a slightly mortified Guthrie tried to flee the scene and implored Roker to move on to the weather forecast.

"I love it when a plan comes together," Roker said, as Guthrie walked off.
