Peace talks have broken down. The truce has been violated.

The war is back on and now Adele is caught in the crossfires. But don't worry: There's no bloodshed involved. Just laughter. The conflict in question? Ellen DeGeneres' ongoing prank war with Matt Lauer.

Last fall, DeGeneres swore that that after exchanging hilarious jabs involving (among other things) Lauer in bondage gear, DeGeneres on a racy billboard for plumbing services and a Porsche Cayenne full of ping pong balls, they would call a truce.

But then she saw Lauer's December interview with Adele and she thought of an idea too good to pass up.

"I made a resolution [that] in 2016, I was not going to mess with Matt Lauer anymore," she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday. "Instead I'll just show you this clip of him interviewing Adele."

DeGeneres went on to show footage from the interview, which was doctored to show Lauer getting a little intimate with Adele's hand -- and the singer reacting with horror. Here's the "Today" take on the incident:

Lauer vowed to retaliate, though he said he had "no idea" how quite yet. It seems that this most recent peace treaty was as hollow as the last one.
