'Like a thousand tiny fingers!' Matt Lauer makes a splash with Sochi fish pedicure

Video: TODAY’s Matt Lauer gets a $3 pedicure in Sochi, where fish nibble on his feet. “It’s like a thousand tiny fingers,” he says. “This is crazy.”

TODAY's Matt Lauer has been more than willing to open himself up to the spirit of Russia and the Sochi Games, so when he heard about a fish pedicure, he had to give it a try.

So what exactly does the fishy spa treatment entail? You simply dip your feet into water tanks, and tiny, toothless carp begin to nibble at your feet's dead skin, allowing for a simultaneous pedicure and massage.

Matt initially hesitated about dipping his feet, but once he made the dive, he was glad he did. 

"It's like a thousand tiny fingers!" Matt exclaimed. "This is better than putting a quarter in that hotel bed. This is great."

Sounds like Matt might have a new dressing room request when he returns to Studio 1A next week? To that we say, "carp diem!"
