Kristen Wiig may be set to star in the all-female Ghostbusters remake, but she’s still a little edgy around ghosts. Ellen DeGeneres proved it with a recent prank.

DeGeneres scared Wiig with a ghost popping out of an otherwise innocuous-looking coffee table mid-interview. Wiig’s response was priceless.

After screaming and wondering if DeGeneres had rigged the table just for that gag (she had), Wiig ran across the set and claimed two set pieces as her own as payback.
