Ellen DeGeneres Sends Two Staffers To Another Haunted House And Their Reactions Are Amazing
Ellen DeGeneres gets a kick out of scaring her employees. Every year, she sends her writer, Amy, to a haunted house for Halloween and watches in amusement as the entire ordeal is recorded. This year, she added executive producer Andy into her personal game of scare tactics.
She sent the pair to Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights” to walk through the “Walking Dead” maze. “This is one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen in my life,” she said on her show before she began rolling the clip.
It’s hard to decide which part of the first video is funnier: the fact that Amy does an amazing scream-laugh combo, or that Andy got so scared he repeatedly shielded his own body with Amy’s, true man-style. At the end of the day, he seemed more scared than his co-worker as he barely smiled, cursed, and at one point subtly considered turning back around. “Stop it! Stop it now!” he shouted to the zombies running out and scaring him. “I get it, they come out at you,” he says after over two minutes of zombies “coming out” at them.
“You literally hid behind a girl,” Ellen says with tears coming down her eyes from laughter.
It was so funny to the talk show host that she decided she had to do it again, reveling in the fear of her staff (and who could ignore the more than 4 million YouTube views it received?).
This time, she sent them to Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor, a haunted boat experience.
Andy felt a little bit more experienced, as he tried to laugh it off in the beginning of his second time around. But, sooner or later, he’s back to saying his haunted house catchphrase: “Stop!”
One of the funniest parts of the second video is his rationalization that if he sees the haunted characters, he can proceed without being afraid, which actually worked zero times for him. At one point, he stops to take several deep breaths as if he’s just run a marathon. Amy, who laughed a lot more the first time, is genuinely scared this time, and you’ll barely hear a chuckle out of her.
The real pro in all this? The camera man, who sees everything they see and barely budges.
