Chokers are the thing right now, and they’re not just for women. This morning on Today, Matt Lauer discussed the new trend, but said that ASOS, one site that sells them in their men’s section is “late to the game” because he has “been wearing one for years.” He unbuttoned his shirt to reveal he was in fact wearing a choker. Lauer’s co-hosts couldn’t handle it and erupted in laughter. Twitter had a ton of mixed emotions about the whole thing and also could not handle it:
