Notre Dame running back Cam McDaniel became an internet sensation with his quite photogenic photo from Notre Dame's game against USC. And once you've become an internet sensation, the next step is to hit the network morning shows.

So, logically, McDaniel was on the Today Show Friday morning. (Didn't we call this Wednesday?) And it was really, really awkward.

The Today Show's female hosts, Tamron Hall, Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales were absolutely enamored with McDaniel, so much so that you can see how uncomfortable he is. At one point, he's even asked if he was real. Was that a Manti Te'o joke?

Heck, it's uncomfortable to watch, especially as his phone number is (jokingly?) requested. We can't imagine how McDaniel felt.
