You know Ellen DeGeneres loves a good prank. So when Emma Watson was a guest on her show, she devised a scheme wherein she (Emma Watson) would be holding a job interview to hire a nanny. A nanny for her (Emma Watson), not for children, because she doesn't have any kids. But she definitely acted like one in the interview.

Throughout the whole thing, Ellen is in her ear, telling her what to say. Much like all her other celebrity pranks, she ups the ante on craziness with basically each sentence. And with a humongous lollipop for Watson.

Here's a brief summary of the chosen nanny's necessary qualifications, as dictated to Watson by Ellen: "I don't like crusts on sandwiches. I don't like milk, but I do like Red Bull...I like to go potty alone. I don't need you to help me potty."

Thank goodness Ellen's prank co-conspirators tend to be professional performers—there's no way a novice could get through this without cracking up.
