John Oliver's brutal and hilarious take on 'Brexit'
The word 'Brexit' has been bandied about a lot over the last few months, but the time in now when Britain goes to vote whether they should stay as part of the European Union or not. Now, if anybody's going to dive head first into a contentious hot topic, it's Last Week Tonight host John Oliver.
The British host of HBO's hugely successful current events satire show launched into a scathing and typically hilarious attack on the Brexit movement. Taking aim at former London Mayor Boris Johnson ("the look and insight of Bam Bam from the Flinstones"), Far-Right politician Nigel Farage, and the scaremongering rhetoric that fuels their arguments.
Bar a song in the closing moments entitled 'F*** you European Union', it's a predictably one-sided affair, and we highly suggest you check out our slightly more balanced account of today's Brexit debate.
He finishes with the argument that Britain would be "bat***t crazy" to leave the EU, but if he actually wanted us to think that, would he really notify us to the existence of the mortifying official EU anthem music video at 12:35?
No. No he would not. Is John Oliver a sleeper agent for the EU? A false flag? Whatever the answer, we simply cannot have anything to do with that music video.
