Have you heard about The Slap? No, well its a new four-episode American mini-series on NBC, which stars a list critically acclaimed actors – Zachary Quinto, Melissa George, Peter Sarsgaard and Uma Thurman.
To help promot the new show Ellen DeGeneres created a little parody on the The Ellen Show. A hilarious video cutting together all of the times she has fake-slapped people in her comic sketches… and we’re not gonna lie, we thought the actual The Slap would have been a little more like this:
The actual show explores how a family deteriorates after a father is taken to court for slapping another person’s child. The series is a remake of the Australian show of the same name, and that in turn was based on a novel. The first episode aired on Feb. 12, with the second airing this week on NBC.
