Ellen DeGeneres is hilarious, clever and kind, but her most attractive asset has got to be a complete refusal to take herself too seriously.

The comedienne is a huge Nicki Minaj fan, and couldn't resist the opportunity to poke a little fun at Nicki's Anaconda video, which is ripe for parody due to its ridiculous sexual exaggeration and booty-popping.

Wearing a butt pad and cutoff shorts, Ellen does her best to recreate Nicki's famous twerking moves but doesn't quite get it, even surrounded by a team of professional dancers.

Considering Ellen starts every show dancing out to the audience, we thought she could do better than this! Either way, it's hilarious and we're sure Nicki approves.
