The only thing Ellen DeGeneres loves more than collecting talented children she finds on Youtube is watching people get scared. Any loyal fan knows that she’s pretty into scaring her own guests, over and over and over again. She’s also into scaring her staff. See the best haunted house reaction video ever made for further proof of that. Today, she shared her love of scaring people with Amy Poehler. Turns out that Amy Poehler does not love watching people freak out quite as much as Ellen. But to be fair, no one really does.
Earlier in the show Amy mentioned that she hates being scared and therefore does not not find it all funny when other people are scared, pranked and otherwise tricked. In fact, she gets angry when it happens. Ellen responded to this news by whipping out a collection of her fave scare videos to show Amy just how funny they can be. Does she laugh? Does she get angry? Does she storm off the set? You’ll have to watch to find out. After all, I know how much the interweb hates spoilers.
But regardless of whether or not you get insane amounts of delight from watching people freak the eff out or not doesn’t really matter right now. What matters is that we’ve been given the unique opportunity to spend a few minutes with Ellen and Amy. Four minutes and fifty two seconds to be exact. Next to Amy and Tina (and I guess God and the Sanderson Sisters), I can’t really think of two other ladies who would be more fun to hang out with on a Thursday afternoon. And yes, if you get real close to your computer screen, you’ll feel like you’re right there with them, just watching Youtube vids and hanging out and being best friends.
