Matt Lauer On 'Jimmy Fallon': 'Today' Host Recites 'Your Body Is A Wonderland' (VIDEO)

Matt Lauer lended himself to a strange cause when he appeared on Tuesday's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

Fallon played the game "Wheel of Carpet Samples" with three members of the audience. The bizarre game ended with cameras panning to Lauer, who was on hand to recite the lyrics to John Mayer’s “Your Body is a Wonderland."

"We got the afternoon, you got this room for two," the "Today" host began in a serious tone.

Lauer has been at the center of a firestorm of bad press since Ann Curry's ouster from "Today" last year. He recently joked that he is less popular than polio. When Zach Galifianakis asked if he had ever hosted "Saturday Night Live," Lauer responded, "I don't think I'll be asked to do it, but I would do it, if asked."
