Pulling out all the stops for the "Today Show's" annual Halloween event, TV journalist Matt Lauer, dressing up as "Bay Watch" babe, Pamela Anderson revealed a few painful facts about his charade.

Reportedly using a testicle vice to flatten his crotch for the swimsuit, the 55-year-old said,On today's (November 13) episode of Ellen DeGeneres's daytime talk show, "The hardest part [was] putting on the device. It's called a concealer is what it is."

He described his changing process, saying, "I'm in the dressing room and I get naked and then you put this thing on. I've never put Spanx on, but I would imagine it's sort of Spanx times ten. And it's intentionally twenty sizes too small."

Ellen then asked him, "So it's to flatten you down?"

"It's more than flatten you down!" Lauer said. "I've had my kids though. I'm alright." Watch the video below!
