Not to worry, though; we'll walk you through the highlights, scene by scene.

First up, there's Lochte in all his white-haired glory. "Hey, this is Ryan Lochte, at the TODAY Show," our fearless leader begins with a wide-eyed leer.

Then, with the help of a Snap filter (and for no reason at all), he turns into a pineapple and starts vomiting pineapple juice. This part is a lesson in "what to do immediately upon gaining access to a very popular Snapchat account."

Perhaps because of the aforementioned vomiting pineapple incident, Lochte leaves us at this juncture, offering some quick closing remarks before the camera pans to something much more appalling than any nauseated fruit: Baby Boomer Phelps, face-swapped with his dad, Michael Phelps.

HELP. It's an unsettling visual, to say the least.

Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski take over next, and finally, there's Brazilian-American model Camila Alves cooking with our hosts.
