Ellen decided to get into the holiday spirit by pranking unsuspecting holiday shoppers by offering them free wrapping.
She sent one of her writers to Michael's and installed hidden cameras to watch what happened at his "free wrapping" station. He was posed there to help writers as they made their holiday purchases.
He wasn't good at it. From hand tearing various pieces, to using birthday wrapping paper, this help turned out to be not so helpful.
Take a look below to see the prank and the shopper's reaction.
After watching this, I think I'm going to do my own wrapping this holiday season. What about you?
