Ellen DeGeneres has been having a lot of fun lately getting male celebrities to strip down to their briefs and sit in a dunk tank on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and the latest willing participants are “Dancing with the Stars” runner-up Gilles Marini and “Mockingbird Lane” star Jerry O’Connell.
Somehow this has something to do with raising money to support National Breast Cancer Awareness. So it’s for a good cause. But we’re not sure that’s the real appeal of these video segments, which previously featured Liam Neeson and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Despite his actually naked appearance in the “Sex and the City” movie, Marini seems a bit embarrassed by the whole thing. But O’Connell hams it up, shaking his booty and getting spanked by audience members on his walk to the dunk tank. It probably helped that his wife Rebecca Romijn and “Mockingbird” co-star Portia de Rossi were there cheering him on. Watch both videos below:
