Regis Philbin has done some whacky things before, but nothing, as far as we recall, that resulted in him getting partially naked on national TV. Leave it to ‘Jersey Shore’ train-wreck Snooki for bringing out the wild man in The Reeg.

On ‘Live With Regis and Kelly,’ Philbin stripped off his shirt to try on a tie given to him by Snooki.

Perhaps Snooki’s racy antics on the reality show inspired Reeg to bare his 80-year-old chest in all its glory. Or maybe he’s just decided to throw caution to the wind as his final show approaches on Nov. 18. Either way, it’s a sight to see.

Watch Regis get down and dirty below.
