The Today show team are no strangers to engaging their audience, whether it's through their fashion or fun conversations, but now they've appeared in a very different light. 

The crew - including Jenna Bush Hager, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, Dylan Dreyer, Savannah Guthrie and more - looked nothing like they normally do in a social media post shared by Al Roker.

Sharing a snapshot of the artwork on Instagram, he wrote: "You know you've arrived when the great @bradableson turns you into one of the @minions. BANANA!!!!"

The brilliant picture had captured all of their personalities and wardrobes, with Al sporting his trademark hat and glasses, Jenna carrying a book underneath her arm and Savannah rocking one of her favorite leather jackets.

Al and his Today show co-hosts had been turned into Minions 

Al's post comes days after Jenna revealed what Al is really like off-air. Chatting to Willie Geist - who was standing in for Hoda - Jenna opened up about a wedding she had attended with Al. 

"Al Roker was sitting across from us," she explained. "Al, at a wedding, which I've been at a party or two with him but at a wedding…" she explained, before finally admitting: "He likes to rate the speeches, likes to rate the toast."

The Today show team are never lacking in fun 

The Today group are all incredibly close to one another and regularly show support both on and off-screen. 

They will all be there for Al as he also prepares for a major change in his life. 

His son, Nick, will be headed off to college after the summer, so he and his wife Deborah Roberts will be cherishing every moment before then. 

They recently marked a huge milestone when he graduated from high school and they couldn't have been more proud.
