Behind-the-scenes footage has emerged showing what went on to get Kim Kardashian into Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress for the Met Gala this week.

Kim borrowed the Monroe’s dress from Ripley’s museum in Orlando and wore it to the Met Gala, causing the internet to erupt into discourse about “ruining” a piece of history.

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! documented the surgeon-like precision it took for a team of multiple people to squeeze all that internet-breaking Kardashian cake into the vintage gown.

TMZ obtained the video and boy, does it sound like an ordeal in the emergency room.

“Kim, push! Kim, push!” one fitter exclaims like a midwife in distress.

“Push what?” Kim asks.

“Push your ass!”

“Like, where?” Kim responds — understandably so.

IN!” he tells her.

After several minutes of blood, sweat, and tears, Kim Kardashian is seen wearing the historic Marilyn Monroe gown, but there’s a huge gaping hole on her butt — no pun intended.

The team discusses whether they should cover up the gap with fur to make the dress look presentable on the royal derriere.

“Should I go to the gym…?” a puzzled, internally panicking Kim asks her boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson.

Oh yeah, did we mention her new boo was in the room? He’s just there being Kim’s cheerleader, doing things to make her laugh, and vibing in a corner.

At the end of the tense video, Operation Butt Gala comes to an end. Kim sighs in relief and finally smiles.

The beauty mogul was seen wearing the dress at the Met Gala without any fur. How, you ask? She went on a very strict diet.

“I would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein,” she told Vogue in an interview.
