Today Show anchors learned a big lesson today about inviting actor Jim Carrey onto their show. Don't allow Jim into the studio until right before his interview or bad things will happen — like Matt Lauer will try to ride him like a horse.

Here's how it went down.

So, what was Matt to do? Hop on his back and ride him — obviously!

"Come on, little Matty! Come on, little Matty!" Jim shouted. "Who's your cowboy? Who's your cowboy? That's a good cowboy!"

Matt joked later in the show, "I can't believe I rode Jim Carrey."

Neither can we!
