They were given a special treat when Savannah Guthrie shared a clip of the Christmas commercial aired by the show, which featured all their stars celebrating together.

They all passed presents around to each other and began decorating and having fun to fully embody the spot's festive vibe.

However, many fans couldn't help but notice that one key star was missing - that being Dylan Dreyer, who is currently on maternity leave.

The show still included her in their segment, though, as she appeared via FaceTime in her Christmas pajamas, holding a drink out to her co-stars.
