Comedian, actor, and The Masked Singer host, Nick Cannon recently released a hilarious skit on his Instagram alongside internet personality and entertainer Lele Pons. The skit aims to teach viewers the nuances of properly complimenting women in professional workplace environments in the modern era.

Nick Cannon, Lele Pons Collaborate on a Funny Skit

The skit kicks off in an office space, where Cannon innocuously compliments Pons, remarking, “You look really good today.” Surprisingly, Pons reacts with visible discomfort, seemingly offended by the direct comment on her appearance. As we soon find out, Cannon has an educational purpose behind the awkward exchange.

What ensues is a playful exchange as Cannon attempts revised compliments, each time inadvertently aggravating Pons further. Despite his efforts to rectify the situation, Cannon finds himself in a predicament, apologizing to Pons and adamantly denying any intention of looking at her “that way.”

The final twist is that Pons seems more offended at the insinuation she’s not attractive enough to compliment. Caught in a double bind, Cannon hurriedly excuses himself, leaving the tension humorously unresolved.

Pons is famous for her comedic skits and videos across social media platforms. As revealed in Season 9 of The Masked Singer where she performed in disguise as Jackalope, Pons has long expressed herself through performing. Indeed she now has a massive audience with over 50 million followers across platforms.

That massive fanbase was on display when Pons’ recent elimination from Dancing With the Stars Season 32 sparked literal protests from distraught viewers. After being voted off, Pons was surprised to see fans organizing public rallies and sign-waving events to demand her return.

Nick Cannon, Lele Pons Once Hosted The Teen Choice Awards Together

As seen in Cannon’s recent viral workplace compliance skit with internet star Pons, the two have comedic chemistry to spare. As it turns out, the pair demonstrated that chemistry for a massive live audience when they previously teamed up to co-host the 2018 Teen Choice Awards together.

The popular awards show airing annually on Fox gives fans the chance to vote for their favorite celebrities across entertainment genres. The co-hosting announcement came about a month before the big show held at The Forum arena in Los Angeles. Pons was herself nominated for three individual TCA awards that year including Choice Female Web Star.

On the night of August 12th, 2018, Pons and Cannon presided over a star-studded extravaganza with appearances by today’s top celebrities favored among Gen Z audiences. The list included rising young stars like Lucy Hale, Zendaya and Chloe Grace Moretz alongside established standouts like Nina Dobrev. True to form, Pons and Cannon kept the atmosphere lively injecting viral humor tailored to engaged teen viewers.
