Think your job is rough? How many bloody zombies jumped out at you today? If the answer is less than a dozen, your job's a cakewalk compared to that of "Ellen DeGeneres Show" executive producer Andy Lassner.
In what's become a Halloween tradition, DeGeneres made Lassner, accompanied by his assistant Jacqueline, take a fear-tastic march through the “Dracula Untold” maze at Universal Studios Hollywood.
“I would like to tell you that they handled themselves with grace and dignity, but that would be a lie,” DeGeneres told her audience Thursday.
"This is all happening for Ellen's twisted personal amusement," says Lassner near the beginning of the 5-minute video.
And the two start jumping in fear almost instantly. "It didn't even start!" protests Lassner to an early monster.
It gets worse. Lassner's never afraid to hold Jacqueline ahead of him like a battering ram, once slamming her into the wall and then proclaiming, "See what I did there? I helped you get away from them!"
And he probably should've stopped at the restroom beforehand, declaring after one scare, "I just peed! I swear to God, I just peed!" Too much information, Andy!
Perhaps the most terrifying part of the maze for the duo is when they approach a seemingly innocent framed portrait. Yeah, it's not innocent, or really a portrait, it's a window that swings open to reveal a terrifying, white-faced, bloody monster. "WHAT ARE YOU DOING?" shrieks Lassner.
But Lassner holds it together enough to act calm and composed as the two exit the haunted house, declaring, "Definitely not scary at all." He has no idea that one more scare lurks just around the corner.
"Oh my God," laughs DeGeneres back in the studio, wiping tears from her eyes. "Andy, thank you so much."
