Hoda and Jenna recently visited the Smoky Mountains with a family — but it wasn't actually them.
As part of their TODAY series “Jenna and Hoda on the Road-A" that aired on Friday, Hoda and Jenna showed photos of them "traveling" alongside viewers Kelly and Greg Lee and their two children, Abigail and Jack, during a summer vacation to the Smoky Mountains. Instead of the TODAY hosts being there in person, though, it was life-size cutouts making the trek.
In a series of comical pictures provided by the Lee family, Hoda and Jenna's cutouts are seen accompanying the family everywhere — starting with the back seat of their car on the eight-hour car ride.
"I think Hoda is saying, 'are we there yet?'" Jenna joked.
More pictures show the family, plus the two cardboard extras, in the mountains, posing next to a bear statue.
"We were glamping on their family adventure," Hoda said.
But the Lee family didn't stop there. Even when they embarked on a hike to Rainbow Falls, Hoda and Jenna were brought along, too, with a picture showing their folded-up cutouts being shouldered by one of the kids.
The two also "joined" the family around a campfire and made a pit stop at the souvenir shop.
"This might be the weirdest thing we've ever done," Jenna laughed as the two looked through the pictures.
“The Lee’s rock, thank you for taking us on!” Hoda said, with Jenna adding, “We’re sorry that we took up so much space!”
Hoda and Jenna also got a little extra surprise from their producers with pictures of them photoshopped next to famous celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Serena Williams.
