On Wednesday’s show, Hoda led a segment on minks escaping.

“The search is on this morning for 40,000 mink on the loose in Northwest Ohio,” she said.

The camera then cut to b-roll as Hoda talked over it, so no one watching knew what was going on in the studio.

As she talked, the host started to chuckle and then an odd sound was heard in the background.

When the video stopped, Hoda and Craig were seen uncontrollably laughing.

“Sorry,” Hoda said, as Craig chimed in: “So many questions.”

Savannah chuckled and then tried to get the panel back to normal.

“I know. I was signaling to Craig. I’m sorry,” she laughed.

“Anyway,” Hoda laughed. “We hope everything is fine.”

The TODAY Show hosts all calmed down before moving on to the next segment.

LAUGH IT OFF!

This isn’t the first time Hoda has broken into laughter on live TV.

Last week, the host found herself in an uncomfortable moment with guest, Seth Rogan, and she had no choice but to laugh it off.

In the segment, the 58-year-old and the funnyman sat down to discuss his new film, The Fabelmans.

During the clip, the NBC broadcaster asked Seth to explain his “side project,” a company called Houseplant.

Houseplant is a cannabis company founded by the actor, his longtime writing partner Evan Goldberg, 40, and businessman Michael Mohr.

Seth seconded that fact by excitedly explaining, “I own a company that… we sell weed in California.”

He then continued: “All over America, we sell HomeGoods for people who smoke weed, which is now legal in New York.”

A surprised and embarrassed Hoda broke into laughter as she attempted to explain how she wasn’t aware of what the company does but eventually conceded to hiding her face inside her hand.

The Pineapple Express actor used Hoda’s sudden loss of words to pitch the company’s services as he stated: “If you are someone who smokes weed or you have people in your life who smoke weed and you’re looking for a gift for the holidays… go to houseplant.com and we’ll hook you up.”

Hoda admitted, over Seth’s famous laugh: “I had no idea what that was until this moment.”

TV TMI!

Earlier this month, Hoda laughed on live TV again as Savannah made a NSFW joke.

The women sat with Craig again at the main desk as they talked about the FAA’s request for travelers’ feedback on the size of airplane seats.

While the topic was pretty much serious, Savannah turned it into a joke.

“So, we’re going to turn now to this long-running issue for airline passengers, as we head into the busiest travel period of the year,” Hoda said.

She turned to her co-hosts and said: “And we’re talking about the size of those seats.”

Savannah sighed and replied: “Yes. Size matters.”

Hoda cracked up and Craig cracked a smile as Savannah kept a serious face and continued on with the segment.
