Watch Adele and Ellen Degeneres Prank Jamba Juice Workers

The Ellen Show

During a clip from her appearance later today on Ellen, Adele did what we all secretly wish we would do at every juice bar: Touch the wheat grass.

Luckily, however, this wasn't a warning sign of a forthcoming celebrity breakdown, and instead all part of a harmless prank. Via earpiece, Ellen instructed Adele exactly what to do and say during an otherwise routine trip to a Jamba Juice. This ended up including Adele reaching behind the counter to cut, then eat, the wheatgrass, taking a shot of amaretto, and imitating the sound a deer makes. Needless to say, the starstruck Jamba Juice employees were very, very uncomfortable. Watch it all go down in the clip below.
