Ellen DeGeneres reads 'Fifty Shades of Grey' -- with sound effects

Fans of E.L. James' steamy bestseller "Fifty Shades of Grey" got a treat on Thursday's "Ellen DeGeneres Show" as the host delivered her very own book-on-tape reading gone wrong.

What it lacked in passion, it made up for in laughs.

Watch the clip below for all the intentionally not-so-hot action, including awkward sound effects  and valuable asides.

"Well, I don't think you should use a spatula for that!" Ellen pointed out before warning readers, "If you go to Anastasia's house, don't eat the pancakes."
