No one enjoys scaring people quite as much as Ellen DeGeneres, except for maybe Stephen King. Her obsession with scaring her executive producer Andy Lassner, as well as her guests (but especially Lassner, who she admits she loves scaring the most), around Halloween is legendary, but as the talk show host explains, "It's not seasonal, you can scare people year-round." Plus, she read some stuff on the internet about how getting scared is actually really good for you, so now she can justify her antics.

On Wednesday, she and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine (who's got experience in the scaring people department from his stint on American Horror Story: Asylum) scared the wits out of unsuspecting ladies in the bathroom, including one older woman who ran out and never looked back (and may still be running).

Of course, once people got over the initial shock of cymbals and air horns and aliens in the restroom, they were pretty psyched, but getting scared by Ellen is a pretty big deal. Getting scared by Adam Levine, too, I guess, but he's not nearly as into it as she is. And happily, she made one woman's dream come true.
