Another video of Matt Lauer surfaces making creepy comments to female co-host

And the videos just keep coming.

Another old video of former NBC host Matt Lauer surfaced showing him allegedly making inappropriate comments to his co-anchor.

In the October 2006 video, which was brought to light again by TMZ on Wednesday, Lauer is heard apparently speaking to co-host Meredith Viera as the “Today” show cut away to commercial.

“Pretty sweater. Keep bending over like that, it’s a nice view,” Lauer told Vieira.

Although the morning show had cut away to a commercial break, one city’s local affiliate station kept the feed live and on the air as Viera had her microphone positioned and Lauer was seen sitting on a couch. He made the comment as his co-host leaned over in front of him to pick up scripts.

Viera took over the co-anchor position in September 2006, replacing Lauer’s former on-air partner, Katie Couric. Another video unearthed by TMZ featured Couric in a 2012 interview on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live,” saying Lauer “pinches me on the ass a lot.”

NBC announced Wednesday that it had fired the long-time star due to “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.” Following the “detailed complaint from a colleague” that led the network to make its decision, other women came forward Wednesday evening alleging Lauer sexually harassed them as well.

Lauer issued a statement Thursday, read by his former colleagues on the “Today” show which he co-hosted since 1994, Fox News reported.

“There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt I am truly sorry,” Lauer said.
