The Today Show just released a teaser video for Pippa Middleton's first television interview ever, and like any good teaser, they don't let the main event speak too much, saving that big reveal for the airing date on this upcoming Monday and Tuesday. But it's not all the correspondents' uncomfortable banter. You get to hear Pippa say, "Hate to say it, but I was actually in America all of last week." (Context: Somehow she avoided the Today Show's clutches while biking across 13 states for charities.)

The clip is mostly just Matt Lauer giving off weird "Daaaad, don't embarrass me in front of the internet!" vibes. Hopefully, in the actual interview he manages to talk to her like she's a big girl.
