Thought Bruno Mars’ halftime show at the Super Bowl was good? Wait until you see his recent appearance on The Ellen Show. The Grammy Award-winning artist and the all-around wonderful Ellen DeGeneres staged a hidden camera prank with hilarious results.

Here’s the scene: Bruno’s backstage at Ellen in his dressing room, which has been bugged. He’s also wearing an earpiece and is ready to repeat anything Ellen whispers in his ear. Enter the unsuspecting nurse who was called to check on the talent.

In the next five or so minutes, the nurse is put through the ringer as Bruno and Ellen go all out to get laughs. First, the star asks her to remove her shoes; the dressing room is a “no shoe zone,” explains Bruno, who also insists on being called Ramón.

From there, things only get funnier as Bruno tries to talk up his Super Bowl performance, which, turns out, the nurse hasn’t seen. In fact, she seems to have no idea just how famous her patient is.

Animal noises, weird requests, and light crying come next. We don’t want to spoil anything for you so head below to see the kind of magic Ellen and Bruno make together.
