Ellen DeGeneres has brought back her hilarious signature star-studded hidden camera prank, in which she directs a celebrity how to act through an earpiece - and it is the perfect watch for a Friday evening!

Teaming up with Melissa McCarthy, the devilish duo were perfect partners in crime.

This time around, McCarthy's victim was an unsuspecting drycleaners worker.

The actress tells the poor worker at Milt & Edie’s Drycleaners in Burbank, California, that she accidentally took two Tylenol PMs for a headache and then mistakenly drank "sleepy time tea" instead of green tea.

The peak of the prank came when DeGeneres told the actress to start falling asleep and then fall on the floor, which naturally spurred some concern from the employees.

Fortunately, the popular talk show host had her wake up—shouting Emilio Estevez, no less— and reveal that the comedian was behind the prank the whole time.

"It's Ellen's fault," McCarthy said while hugging the shocked employee.
