This sketch was made to air on comedian Ellen Degeneres' talk show, "Ellen," but it quickly went viral once it was uploaded to the web. Like the Gottfried sketch, this clip imagines what it would be like if Degeneres had been asked to read the audio version of "50 Shades of Grey." In typical Ellen fashion, things don't go according to plan. So funny!

Gilbert Gottfried

There is a good reason that this clip has been viewed over 3,032,666 times on YouTube. Hearing the grating but distinctive voice of Gilbert Gottfried (think "Iago" from "Aladdin") uttering such phrases as "I felt my nipples pucker" nearly made me spit out my coffee! Produced by Jest Comedy, this clip has great production value. The expressions on the faces of the women who are listening to a fictitious audio book version of "50 Shades" narrated by Gottfried are priceless. This is less than two minutes of comedy that you just shouldn't miss.

Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis

While out stumping for their political comedy, "The Campaign," comedic actors Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis did an impromptu reading of the bestselling romance novel. Casting rumors had reached an epic pitch, so the two funny guys tried their hand at reading for the part of Christian Grey. Hilarity ensued.

While giving an interview on Dutch television show, "College Tour," the host asked beloved American humorist David Sedaris to read a passage written by his "colleague" (gag!) E.L. James. Ever the good sport, Sedaris obliged, and he emoted hilariously and brought the text to life. There is just something so funny, yet so mortifying, about hearing a wonderful, witty writer like Sedaris say, "He gently pulls my tampon out and tosses it into the nearby toilet." And that's just in the first 40 seconds!

Brock Baker does impressions — lots and lots of impressions. And he's really good at them, too!

In this "Fifty Impressions Of Grey" video, he reads the famous text in the voices of over fifty famous voices in just eight minutes. You have to see it to believe it.

George Takei

If you like your awkward pseudo-pornography read aloud by former "Star Trek" cast member and web legend, George Takei, this clip is for you! Punctuating nearly every naughty passage with his trademark, "Oh myyyyy," Takei narrates these pages like a pro.

You might know this British actor better as Tywin Lannister from "Game of Thrones." Picture his placid face and dulcet tones... now picture him reading dirty, filthy prose.

You're welcome.

"Supernatural" has an enormous fan base, many of whom are of the female persuasion, so the screaming fangirls you hear in the background as the two stars act out a scene from "50 Shades" are par for the course! The fact that there are hip gyrations and, um... pelvic thrusts, doesn't hurt a bit.

MTV After Hours gets some of the hottest celebrities (HELLO, Chris Hemsworth?!) to read smutty passages, and it's every bit as awkward as you might imagine it would be. Poor Thor seems to be blushing!
