This has definitely been the most baffling thing we've seen today.

NBC News would not allow Chelsea Clinton to appear in a video advocating for marriage equality, but the network did allow her to fake interview the Geico Gecko. It was sort of weird!

Clinton asked the Geico Gecko about his life as a celebrity lizard. Clinton asked questions like, "Now Gecko, do people recognize you on the street?" and "Is there a downside to all this fame?" And they made a fake yearbook picture for the gecko, for some reason which is still unclear.

This exchange is part of a larger series about advertising that Clinton is reporting on for "Rock Center with Brian Williams" (we think). Check out the one-minute video in the clip above.
