Dolly Parton teaches Matt Lauer how to be her for Halloween

Hello, Dollys!

Matt Lauer transformed into country music legend Dolly Parton on the Halloween episode of the “Today” show on Tuesday with her help and a few essential props.

“Are you okay with this?” Lauer asked Parton when she popped into his dressing room behind the scenes of the NBC show. “Am I okay with it?” Parton replied, “I’m gonna teach you how to do it!”

Parton introduced Lauer to her “Dolly Starter Kit,” a hot pink suitcase packed with Dolly essentials like a voluminous blonde wig, a black, bejeweled bra top and “boob tube,” a device that strongly resembles a bike pump to, according to Dolly, “pump them up,” a “Botox gun” (or caulk gun) and an industrial-sized tub of makeup.

To Lauer’s horror, Parton brought with her a pair of black platform, stiletto pumps for him to walk in “very carefully, because you can kill yourself,” she said, and taught him how to walk with a “hillbilly swag…like a sexy drag.”

This isn’t the first time Lauer payed homage to a woman for the holiday. In 2000, Lauer wore a replica of Jennifer Lopez’s famous plunging-V, green and blue Grammy Awards dress. He was a denim mini skirt-wearing Paris Hilton in 2004, carrying a tiny dog around Rockefeller Plaza. In 2013, he rocked a red one-piece bathing suit and ran in slow motion as Pamela Anderson’s famous character C.J. from “Baywatch.” And in 2015, in Lauer’s creepiest portrayal of a woman to date, he was Lucy van Pelt from “Peanuts.”
