OʹBrien grabs it, then pushes his pal through the door and laughs fiendishly. Cut to Matt Lauer droning about Hollywood on The Today Show set. As Richter drifts into view, Lauer stops in midsentence. “Iʹve been the victim of a little trick,” Richter explains miserably, his pixilated privates looming over Lauerʹs left shoulder.

At first, Lauer plays along (“Howʹs the show going?”), but Richter gets alarmingly acclimated to his surroundings. “Is Katie around?” he asks.
