We always knew we liked Al Roker. That charming smile, that warm laugh, that total lack of filter. We also knew we were leery of gastric bypass surgery. Turns out, we were right on all accounts, as evidenced by the fact that…um…Al Roker accidentally pooped his pants at the White House. While that’s certainly better than intentionally pooping your pants at the White House, it’s both amazing and shocking to hear the Today Show weatherman admit to going Code Brown with the President of the United States in the next room. Apparently it all started after Al allegedly ate something outside of the dietary restrictions set following his surgery. “And as I’m walking to the press room, I think I gotta pass a little gas here. So, I’m walking by myself, who’s gonna know, only, a little something extra came out,” Al admits to Dateline‘s Dr. Nancy Snyderman. “I pooped in my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew.” Not. Horribly. Not horribly, but enough that everyone in the free world would one day know.
We don’t know who we love more in this moment: Al for his frankness, or interview Snyderman for her sympathetic deadpan. “I got to the restroom, threw out the underwear, and just went commando,” Al recalls. “It told me that I got to be very vigilant as to what I eat.” Good luck, every other celebrity. We challenge you to top that. If your humiliating moment doesn’t at least involve your poop and the Obama White House, then you don’t stand a chance.
