Good Morning, Barbados: Alison Hinds Shows Matt Lauer How to Wuk Up

Matt Lauer from NBC’s Today Show recently traveled down to Barbados for the final stop on his annual journey around the globe. In a video currently floating around online, the host links up with Alison Hinds, who taught him how to wuk up, and introduced him to traditional Bajan costumed figures like “Shaggy Bear” and “Mother Sally.” Lauer tried to duck out of the dance lesson but, apparently, wukking up within three days of a snowshoeing accident is medically acceptable.
